EGGER on board as sponsor for Boccia World Championships

A top class surface for a world class competition, EGGER Protect forms the sub floor for the 2018 Boccia World Championship competition courts.

Boccia is a Paralympic sport designed specifically for athletes with high support needs. The aim: beat your opponent by getting your balls closer to the white ball. Balls can be thrown, kicked or rolled – anything goes.

From the 12th – 18th August, 1384 pieces of EGGER Protect will cover nearly 2000m2 of the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The robust and durable surface of EGGER’s flagship structural flooring board is ideal to cope with the fierce competition as 190 athletes from around the world compete ahead of the Toyko Paralympic Games.

EGGER has worked in partnership with Sheffield-based timber merchant, Arnold Laver, to make this possible.

Alan White, Director of Sales for EGGER Building Products said: "We are looking forward to help deliver the best World Boccia Championships ever seen and are delighted to be a part of a sport that truly captures the spirit of the Paralympics.”
