GB Boccia – about them

The Great Britain Boccia Federation (GBBF) was formed in 2007 to meet the growing need for Boccia to have a co-ordinated Great Britain wide approach to the development of the elite level of the sport.

Previously ‘Great Britain’ had only competed as a unified team at the Paralympic Games. The Home Countries had sent separate teams to European Championships, World Championships and World Cups. These events contribute to world ranking positions and prior to 2007 Great Britain would only qualify for the Paralympic Games based on the position of the highest ranked Home Country. Now Great Britain attend these championships and are able to send the best players from across England, Scotland and Wales in one unified team. The Home Countries continue to send representative teams to non ranking events.
