Four Official Ball Suppliers named

Organisers of the BISFed 2018 World Boccia Championships have struck a deal with four companies who have been named as Official Ball Suppliers to the tournament.

Boccas, Handi Life Sport, Tutti Per Tutti and Victory Sports Ltd will all supply balls for the event which takes place at Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 12-18 August.

The Championships will see more than 180 athletes from around the world battling it out for world titles. Britain will field a team of ten which includes Paralympic gold medallist David Smith MBE and defending champion Stephen McGuire who are both vying for podium positions.

John Dowson, Chair of Boccia UK, explains:

“We are thrilled with the support from the world’s boccia community. Ever since we set out on this journey to host this event, we were determined to deliver the best World Championships ever seen.

“We now have less than one month to go until the Championships begin and I am thrilled to say that thanks to a huge number of partners including Boccas, Handi Life Sport, Tutti Per Tutti and Victory Sports Ltd, we are set to deliver on that promise.

This deal means that our players will perform with the best equipment on the best courts in a first class venue. The world’s best boccia players have much to look forward to!”

 The BISFed 2018 World Boccia Championships has been made possible thanks to UK Sport’s National Lottery funding through its Major Events Programme.
