Add to calendar

Based on bowls or boules, the game is played on a badminton sized court. Players have a set of six balls (either red or blue) which are thrown, kicked or ramped to a white target ball (the jack) and points are scored by those closest to the jack.

Boccia can be played as an individual or team sport and has been designed for people with a severe level of physical and/or learning disability.

Men and women compete together and a classification system operates so that players compete with other players of similar levels of ability.
