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.

Prospective athletes are assessed based on various factors, including their skill level, physical ability, and overall performance at the Boccia State Titles (Boccia Battle). Only those who meet the high standards set by the team’s selectors are ultimately chosen to represent Queensland in competitive Boccia Australia National Titles.
