Sydney to host 2013 Asia Oceania Boccia Championships

Sydney has been named as the host the 2013 Asia Oceania Boccia Championships this October.

The competition will take place at the Sydney Olympic Park (pictured top) from October 18 until 26 while it will be delivered by the newly created Boccia International Sports Federation and Boccia Australia.

The event marks the first international boccia event staged in Australia since the Sydney 2000 Paralympics.

The announcement is also a boost for boccia in Australia, which has experienced a greater focus on improving the development pathway for players and coaches since the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) Boccia programme was revamped following the Beijing 2008 Paralympics.
