Hinchingbrooke School hosted the under-19s Lord’s Taverners Cambridgeshire County Boccia Championships – and it was the home side who were celebrating at the end of the day.

The event was organised by Paul Ashbridge, the sports development officer from Huntingdonshire District Council, and members of Boccia England – and the competition was officiated by Year 11 Hinchingbrooke Boccia qualified leaders.

Once again, the tournament was well attended with 13 teams from all corners of Cambridgeshire taking part and, after a number of league games, the play-offs were between Hinchingbrooke, Granta, Phoenix and Impington Village College.

Hinchingbrooke and Phoenix progressed through to the final where Hinchingbrooke won 4-0. Granta beat Impington 5-2 in the third-fourth place play-off.

Hinchingbrooke and Phoenix will now represent Cambridgeshire in the regional finals which will be held in Hatfield in January.
