2018 New Year Message from the President

As 2017 draws to a close we should look at the highlights of another fantastic year:

  • Boccia remains the fastest – growing Paralympic sport, and BISFed’s membership has continued to grow during the year
  • We implemented a new Competition System and have sanctioned more competitions than ever – 9 World Ranking events during 2017
  • We have implemented a world-class Competition Management System which combines and automates the management of all competition activities with real time publication of scores and results on the internet
  • Following detailed discussions with the International Paralympic Committee, boccia was awarded 8 additional athlete slots for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games
  • We have invested in operational support to provide a more efficient service to our Members
  • In May we held BISFed’s second General Assembly during which a new Board was elected
  • Throughout the year we have once again been entertained and amazed by many outstanding and exciting displays of boccia by our athletes.
