The Kent Boccia Singles Championships were held for the first time since Covid at Canterbury’s Christ Church Sports Centre.
Overall 32 players took part, where they played on eight courts with a full complement of highly-qualified Boccia officials being supported by their necessary assistants.
Boccia is a Paralympic sport - and has been since 1984.
