Cranbrook Cobras qualify for the finals at their first Boccia Games competition

On Thursday 15th November, four of our students attended the West Kent Boccia Games qualifier at Sennocke Sport Centre in Sevenoaks. The boys named themselves the Cranbrook Cobras.

The Cranbrook Cobras met five teams from other schools across West Kent such as Valance School and Bishops Downs. The Boccia games are played seated down, Jack (white ball) is thrown and both teams need to throw their balls as close as possible to the Jack. The team that throws closest wins. The score is given by how many balls are closer than the opposition’s. Each match consists of three games, giving fair play to each team as both teams have the advantage of throwing the Jack, and in the third game the Jack is placed on the central mark.

This was the first time Cranbrook School has entered such a competition. The Cobras did us proud by winning four out of five matches meaning the Cobras have qualified for the final, where they are going to meet the best teams from the rest of Kent.

The boys are very proud to qualify as it was their first tournament, having only had one games lesson to practice.  Well done Cranbrook Cobras and good luck on the 7th March, the date of the final.
