What is Boccia?

Boccia (pronounced “Botcha”) is an action packed, inclusive and sociable game. It can be played by people of all ages and abilities, either competitively or just for fun.

Boccia is hugely enjoyable and easy to learn. The idea of the game is to throw balls closest to the ‘jack’, the white ball, to win. Boccia is a game of both skill and strategy.

Boccia can be played by people with any disability. It is ideal for people in wheelchairs or with limited balance and coordination, as the main rule of the game is that players must remain seated throughout. Players with learning disabilities are able to enjoy the sport due to its easy to follow rules.
