Panathlon and Boccia England successfully today delivered a Boccia Young Officials course at Oak Lodge School in Wandsworth. What made the course ground breaking was the fact that 10 of the 12 participants were deaf or hearing impaired. This challenged us and Boccia England to deliver this course in an adaptive and unique way.

The course went extremely well and Panathlon will now work with these young officials and offer them practical work experience, which will enable them to utilise their new qualifications and skills, out there in the “real world”. Well done to all involved ! (see the blog section for some vide action !)
