Boccia

The Boccia is a modality that has in its origin a game of the ancient Greece, that progressed in Roman Empire, and that gave rise to a wide range of games, of which Bowling and Petanque stand out. Boccia was practiced for many years as a leisure activity until it was introduced at the New York 1984 Paralympic Games as a competitive sport. It is one of only two Paralympic sports that do not have an Olympic counterpart (goalball being the other) and is governed by the Boccia International Sports Federation (BISFed). Did you know…? The name of the sport is spelt B-O-C-C-I-A but it is pronounced “Botcha”! It is unique to the Paralympic Games.

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, student special needs and learning disabilities.

The objective is to place the colored balls (six blues versus six reds) as close as possible to a target ball (white ball), which is thrown strategically by a first player, in your space of play. Boccia is a mixed sport, where there is no division by sex. It can be played individually, in pairs or by teams of three players.

This sport requires of the players much, coordination, muscular control, precision, teamwork, cooperation and strategy, often witnessing a true show of alternating advantage, through the application of techniques and tactics appropriate to each circumstance.
