Boccia is a bowling game that requires concentration, strategy and accuracy rather than strength and can be played socially and competitively up to Paralympic level.
Boccia is similar to the Italian game of ‘bocce’ for players of all abilities, including those with a physical disability. The objective is to throw, kick or use a ramp device to propel leather balls as close as possible to a white ball which serves as the jack (target). Athletes compete in team and individual events on an equal level.
Players can also classify and have the opportunity to compete in representative Boccia at regional, state, national and international levels.
