Paralympic Boccia – Information, History, Rules

Boccia is a target sport that tests muscle control and accuracy, demanding extreme skill and concentration at the highest level.

Believed to have Ancient Greek origins, Boccia is a tough test of nerve, tactics and skill. Played on a rectangular court by individuals, pairs and teams, the sport offers both tension and excitement, as athletes aim to land balls close to a target ball, across a series of demanding ends. The sport is similar to boules or petanque.
