Why does the charity, DEMAND, manufacture Boccia ramps?

DEMAND makes Boccia ramps available so that more people can experience this sport. For the last 8 years DEMAND has manufactured Boccia Ramps. By doing this we have made Boccia more easily accessible to those who want to add a new sport to their leisure activities. Our provision of Boccia ramps helps us continue to support our charitable aim of offering one-off equipment – free of charge – to our disabled clients.

Note:  Proceeds from the manufacture and sale of our Boccia products goes towards supporting our charitable work.

We are one of the most established manufacturers of Boccia Ramps. For several years we worked closely with the medal winning Great Britain Boccia International Team developing Ramps suitable for the BC3 class of the sport. Our well respected Boccia Ramps have been shipped from our workshop in the U.K. to Boccia players around the world.

We would be keen to talk with people and organisations about how we might work with you to support the equipment needs of Boccia players in your country. You can contact us using our online form here.


Note:  
All of our ramps meet the criteria and standards laid down by the international body responsible for the playing of Boccia around the world, namely, Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association. You can review the chapter covering assistive devices (i.e. ramps) in the rule book (see link below) – specifically Chapter 15 – Criteria / Rules for Assistive Devices.

(A) Boccia FUSION ramp  – (download the new FUSION brochure here)

(1) Description

  • This Ramp was recently introduced. The Fusion is the result of almost a decade of development and research in this field. This is our most comprehensive and professional Boccia Ramp.
  • The Boccia FUSION incorporates a whole new swivel mechanism allowing the ramp section to be rotated whilst the base remains stationary offering the player a more precise level of control. Other features include leveling feet with angle and length adjustable legs to guarantee stable and precise operation of the product.
  • The FUSION also comes as a complete kit including two ramp extensions and head pointer all included in a custom made carry case for ease of transportation.

The Benefits of the Fusion – Our Most Advanced Ramp
Of all our ramps, The Fusion gives you the most control over your shot to help you improve your performance.

Prepare for the shot with:

  • More accurate sighting – due to its lift-up flip top
  • Easier sighting for those BC3 category players who can take advantage of the transparent channel that the ball rolls along
  • More precise placement of the ball on the ramp – using the D-Ring
  • Less chance of a foul shot – as the tip of the ramp remains reliably stable
  • Confidence that the ramp will remain in your preferred position – due to its solid construction, leveling feet and adjustable base legs
  • Increased speed – quickly alter the ramps previous position using the horizontal pivot mechanism

Make the shot with:

  • Greater control over the speed of the ball…
  • … as the locking flip top allows you to easily adust & fix the vertical angle of the ramp
  • … the extension provides a greater distance for the ball to run
  • … by adjusting the height of the tip from the ground

(B) Boccia NOVA ramp  – (download the new NOVA brochure here)

(1) Description

  • This Ramp is best suited for players who have more experience and who want to take their game up to the next level.

The Ramp Top

  • The guide rails are made from aluminium tube which gives the ramp great strength and rigidity. The ball runs along a clear, plastic base, designed to allow the player to visibly aim the desired shot through the ramp. The ramp is gently curved at the end to give the ball a smooth transition onto the court.
  • The unique, flexible tip is designed to enable the ball to maintain a more constant speed and not lose any kinetic energy, even at steep angles. This makes for a more predictable, repeatable, powerful and ultimately more accurate shot.
  • The ramp is connected to the base by a front mounted laser cut, steel support and at the rear by a telescopic aluminium arm. The front support allows the ramp tip to be either in contact with the floor or to hang outside the box without touching the floor. The telescopic arm is used to alter the angle of the ramp, achieved with a simple quarter turn of the locking ring using only one hand.
  • The guide rails have been powder coated to give an attractive and durable finish.

The Base

  • Experienced players made it known that they wanted a stable base to give them increased accuracy whilst playing a shot. To achieve this, the base is constructed from steel to give it weight, yet it is easily adjusted to offer maximum stability for the player. It has been deliberately designed to be heavier than other ramps to minimise the problem of accidental contact by the player, or the ramp assistant, moving the ramp off line when taking a crucial shot.
  • Many years ago, for some of the GB squad players, we came up with a shape for the base which has now become standard. The classic T shaped base can be adjusted quickly and easily for use and can be folded down just as quickly for transporting in the carry bag supplied. The base is powder-coated to give an attractive and durable finish.

(2) Features

  • Flexible tip
  • Folds for ease of storage and transportation
  • Curved ramp
  • Clear perspex ramp
  • Telescopic ramp arm
  • Stable steel base

Now the DEMAND Boccia NOVA ramp can be purchased with the new Flip Top which has been specially designed to improve the Nova ramp performance allowing players to more accurately line up shots.

The NEW Flip Top NOVA Boccia Ramp

The all new Boccia Nova Flip Top Ramp has been specially designed to improve the Nova ramp performance allowing players to more accurately line up shots. The new design includes a ‘built in memory’ so that the ramp assistant can easily lift the ramp top for players to aim their shots, once lined up the ramp can be returned back to the same angle of the previous shot. On lowering, the ramp top simply clicks back into place smoothly so as not to disturb the ramp settings.

Just like the original NOVA ramp top, the guide rails are made from aluminium tube which gives the ramp great strength and rigidity. The ball runs along a clear, plastic base, designed to allow the player to visibly aim the desired shot through the ramp. The ramp is gently curved at the end to give the ball a smooth transition onto the court.

The unique, flexible tip is designed to enable the ball to maintain a more constant speed and not lose any kinetic energy, even at steep angles. This makes for a more predictable, repeatable, powerful and ultimately more accurate shot.

The ramp is connected to the base by a front mounted laser cut, steel support and at the rear by a telescopic aluminium arm. The front support allows the ramp tip to be either in contact with the floor or to hang outside the box without touching the floor. The telescopic arm is used to alter the angle of the ramp, achieved with a simple quarter turn of the locking ring using only one hand.
