Boccia is a bowling game for players of all ability levels (similar to the Italian game of ‘bocce’). It requires concentration, strategy and accuracy rather than strength. Boccia can be played socially and competitively up to Paralympic level.

Local programs

Players of all ages and abilities can play boccia at local programs in Brisbane, Rockhampton, Mackay and Townsville. Check the boccia fact sheet for times, dates and locations.

Competition opportunities and pathways

Players can compete in representative boccia at regional, state, national and international level. Players have to be classified to compete at state, national and international levels.

Members can apply for state, national and international funding from the Association.


Boccia kits (balls and jack) are provided at all local programs. Athletes with limited upper limb function may be able to use a ramp and ramp assistant depending on their classification.

Other roles

You don’t have to play boccia to be involved. You can make a contribution as a volunteer, coach, team manager, umpire, administrator of the sport or as an enthusiastic supporter. For more information on volunteer opportunities, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at the Brisbane office or email.
