The 2018 Special Olympics Connecticut Unified Sports Fall Festival is being held this weekend where over a thousand athletes will be competing across the state.

The bocce tournament, consisting of traditional singles and doubles, was held Saturday morning at Scalzi Park.

The Special Olympics Connecticut provides year-round sports training and competitions for over 12,000 athletes of all ages with intellectual disabilities and their teammates without disabilities.

Athletes may have been competing on their own, but they did so with support from their coaches and volunteers that helped with the event. 

The bocce doubles competition starts at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.
