The Sport of Boccia

Boccia is an exciting sport that allows participants to compete equally regardless of age, gender, or level of physical function. It is recognised as a sport requiring both skill and strategy, with the emphasis being on accuracy as opposed to strength. The object of the game is to place as many of your leather-stitched balls as close as possible to the jack target, while preventing your opponent from doing the same. Some players use ramps to project the ball towards the jack, while others throw or bowl the ball. Players can participate for the pure enjoyment or the thrill of a challenge, but some also have ambitions of becoming a Paralympic champion!
