About Boccia PDF Print E-mail

Boccia, as petanque, is a game that descends from ancient Greek games of ball tossing.

Boccia can be played individually, in pair or teams of three. The aim of the game is to throw leather balls - coloured red or blue and the colour of balls of each team is determined by a coin toss - as close as posible of a target ball (white ball). The target's ball is thrown first, then each team takes turns to propel their ball towards to the target ball. The balls can be moved with hands, feet, or, if the athlete's disability is severe, with an assistive device (ramp). At the end of each round and at the end of the game, the referee measures the distance of the balls closest to the target's ball and the referee awards points accordingly with the rule: one point for each ball closer the target ball than the closest ball of the opponentĀ  . The team/player with the highest number of points at the end of play is the winner.

Boccia is designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy and other locomotor disabilities affecting motor skills. It is a Paralympic sport, played in over forty countries worldwide.

But Boccia can be played not only as a competitive sport but also as a recreational activity for all people. Boccias is not played only in a paralympic level. Boccia it is also a great game to senior people and is perfect to enjoy great moments with your children in your backyard or public gardens.
