Overview

Boccia is a game which can be played by anyone with a without a disability.
It is easy for a beginner to pick up quickly but builds in intensity and complexity as players hone their skills. It is a sport of control and accuracy similar to curling or lawn bowling. Games last four or six ends. Players propel balls towards the target or “jack” ball. Each side has six balls (red or blue) per end to try and score points. The closest side to the target ball when all the balls have been played, scores. If the game is tied after all ends have been played, a tie-break end is played. Boccia can be played head to head, in teams of three, or in pairs.

Can’t throw?

No problem. Balls can be rolled or kicked. If a player can’t roll or kick, they can use a ramp. If they can’t let the ball go with their hand, they can use a head or hand pointer.

Boccia is played indoors, on a court that is similar in size to a badminton court.
