“The Boccia Tri-Series” provides a pathway for new players, sports assistants and referees to learn and experience competition. It also offers more experienced Boccia participants with the opportunity to prepare for the Queensland Boccia Championships (i.e., Boccia Battle) at which the Queensland Boccia National Team will be selected.

Preliminary Event Schedule
|Venue Opens and draw collection||8am|
|Warm up Court available||8.30 am|
|Competition Duration||Approx 9am – 4pm|
The competition will consist of Individual divisions of play: BC1, BC2, BC3, BC4/BC5, Open. The results will be determined by player ranking from matches as follows:
|1||Number of Wins||The total number of wins in descending order|
|2||Head-to-Head Record||The total number of wins in descending order against the other side(s) in the tie|
|3||Points Difference||The total number of points scored, minus the total number of points conceded in descending order|
|4||Points For||The total number of points scored, minus the total number of points conceded in descending order|
|5||Ends Won||The total number ends won in descending order|
|6||Positive Points Difference in a Single Match||The highest positive points difference (points scored; minus points conceded) in a single match in descending order|
|7||Positive Points Difference in a Single End||The highest positive points difference (points scored; minus points conceded) in a single end in descending order|
|8||Seeding Position||The lowest ranked side is the winner (ascending order)|
*A BC1 athlete will be awarded a 3 points head start per game as the athlete is competing in a multi-classification pool.
The process for applying these criteria is:
- All sides within the pool are compared against the criteria starting with the number of wins. The side with the greatest number of wins is given the higher finishing position.
- If there is a tie, then criteria two should be applied. The number of tied sides will determine how this criterion is applied. Where two sides are tied, the match between these sides is the tie breaker. Where three or more sides are tied, only the matches between the tied sides should be used. This will mean removing any results of a side not included in the tie. Once these matches have been removed, the side with the greatest number of wins is given the higher finishing position.
- If criteria two cannot split the tie, then criteria three is applied. Where the tie at criteria two involved three or more sides, then criteria three should be applied only to the matches involving the tied sides. This process is repeated with each criterion applied in sequential order until the tie is split.
Friendly matches are played to ensure athletes have a minimum number of games; results do not contribute to scoring. The matches that were forfeited will count towards the non-forfeiting player.
