Boccia showcase for Alice and Ethan

ALICE MAIN and Ethan Phillips are set to officiate at the national Boccia finals in Sheffield, after successfully officiating in regional competitions.

Both studying sport-related courses at Truro College, Alice and Ethan are big advocates for boccia and are hoping to use it as a springboard to where they want to go in the future.

boccia is a ball sport that anyone can play, regardless of physical ability. Similar to bowls, players try to get the most balls closest to the jack to win.

Alice said: “Anybody with any kind of impairment can play it, so it’s something for everybody. As sport is such a big thing now, especially after the London Olympics and Paralympics, it’s great that there’s sport that anyone can play. It brings everybody together. I worked with students with additional needs in the summer and it gave me a broader mindset. I’m looking to do sports therapy next and maybe work with those with additional needs in the future.”
