Dartford Boccia Club
Kent Sport Small Grant
A set of Boccia balls
About the project…
What impact did the funding have on your organisation?
The grant was used to buy a set of balls. As a result we can welcome more people to our regular sessions, and we can also enter individuals into competitions, where they each need a set of balls. The additional balls have enabled us to develop our regular sessions so that we can have several games and training sessions at once, and social players can have fun while the competitive players can focus on training techniques.
How do you intend to continue the success of the project?
Our sessions will continue every two weeks. We are entering two teams into the Kent pairs competition in October 2019 and one or two teams into a Kent team competition in November 2019.
Did you encounter any challenges when attempting to set up the project?
Our main challenge is financial! Our members pay a small fee for each session but this doesn’t cover the hire of the sports hall costs for competitions. We are constantly trying to find funding sources to help to keep us afloat.
