Merton Milestone at Boccia Blast 2024

26th January 2024

The MSSP Boccia Championships took place at Harris Academy Morden on 26th January 2024 with an incredible record number of teams and pupils in attendance for the event this year!

33 teams totalling 132 players took part from 22 schools over 2 sessions throughout the day. The event was wonderfully supported by 7 sports leaders from Harris Academy Year 10s as well as 22 young leaders from St Teresa’s Year 5s. This combination of leadership teams was inspiring to see with across both age groups and we’d like to thank the PE depts. from both schools for organising the support.

Our 17 teams in the morning session were made up from teams representing the following schools:

Hillcross x 2
Cricket Green School
Wimbledon Park
Morden Primary School
Sacred Heart RC
Poplar x 2

Congratulations to Perseid Upper for placing first with St Teresa’s (pink) in second and Hillcross in third.

Congratulations to St Teresa’s (blue) for placing 1st with Merton Park in second and Joseph Hood in third.

Well done to all schools for showing great determination and respect through the day, especially to St Teresa’s and Poplar for being voted REFSPECT winners overall.

Thanks again to all schools for enabling your pupils to take part in our inclusive competitions as it really is great to see so many children enjoying an activity that is accessible to all.
