Boccia England will hold the second edition of their National Boccia Day next month, it has been announced.
The governing body have taken the decision to stage the event on August 12 following the success of last year's National Boccia Day, which took place during the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
This year's event will coincide with the UK Boccia Championships at the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool, which run from August 11 to 13.
Boccia England has called on its members to hold their own "Boccia Fest" to mark the day.
The "Boccia Fest" can include activities, games and competitions to reach out to new participants have fun and celebrate the sport, the national governing body said.
A toolkit has been published by Boccia England to give members ideas of how to celebrate the day and how best to promote their activities.
Clubs that post the best photos on social media, using the hashtag #NationalBocciaDay, will also be entered into a prize draw to win tickets to the 2018 World Championships in Liverpool.
It is scheduled to be held at the same venue as next month's UK Boccia Championships.
Last year's National Boccia Day was staged on September 17, the day after Britain’s David Smith claimed his first individual Paralympic title with a dominant victory in the BC1 classification.
Smith won team gold at the Beijing 2008 Paralympics as well as bronze and silver on home soil at London 2012.
"I think this is a truly great way to get more people involved in this terrific sport, and I hope that National Boccia Day inspires Paralympians of the future," Smith said.
