The Paralympic Sport of Boccia

Boccia (pronounced "Bot-cha") originally played by people with severe cerebral palsy is now a popular disabled wheelchair sport and one of the disabled sports played at the Paralympics. Boccia is an ideal sport and one that does not rely on strength, speed or excessive mobility. The game of boccia is similar to lawn bowls and involves a target ball or Jack.

The game is enjoyed by all abilities because the ball can be either thrown, kicked or rolled using a guiding device. Find details of boccia sites listed below including clubs and organisations for you to get involved in and enjoy the sport.
