Come and try something different by joining our ParkLives Boccia session!
Boccia is a Paralympic sport that can be played by anyone, with or without a disability. It is easy for a beginner to pick up quickly, but builds in intensity and complexity as players hone their skills.
Boccia is a sport of control and accuracy, similar to curling or lawn bowling. Players propel balls towards the target or “jack” ball. Each side has six balls (red or blue) to try and score points. The closest side to the target ball when all the balls have been played, scores. If the game is tied after all ends have been played, a tie-break end is played. Boccia can be played head to head, in teams of three, or in pairs.
If you can’t throw the ball it can be rolled or kicked. If a player can’t roll or kick, they can use a ramp. If they can’t let the ball go with their hand, they can use a head or hand pointer.
