Billy Lam Kei-yau, 18, has been playing for eight years. His cerebral palsy makes it too hard to throw a ball with his hand.
Instead, from his wheelchair, he pushes the ball down a ramp with a pointer extending from his helmet – aiming to hit a white ball several feet away. The aim of the game is to get your ball as close as possible to the white one.
“I like playing boccia because I was able to master the skill easily,” Lam said. He attends two practice sessions a week and has represented his school, Hong Kong Red Cross Princess Alexandra School, in competitions.
