Boccia is a game of strategy and accuracy that was originally designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy. Now, the sport includes athletes with impairments that affect motor skills.

The sport is played on a flat, smooth surface, where players must throw or roll coloured balls as close as possible to a white target ball, known as the “jack.” The player, pair or team with the most balls near the jack is the winner.

Boccia can be played competitively by Athletes with a whole range of disabilities and is one of the sports most adaptable to suit those with the greatest limitations to their mobility.
