The game of Boccia was originally designed for people with severe cerebral palsy but it is now enjoyed by players from many sectors of the community. In 1984 it became a Paralympic sport, and is being practised in Over 50 countires worldwide.

Boccia is a non-contact sport which relies upon skill and subtlety of the plyer rather than their size, speed and strength. A ball can be propelled by rolling, throwing or kicking. If a player is unable to release the ball with their hands they can use a head pointer.


"I really enjoy Boccia because you get to learn new skills in the club and get to use them in competitions. Also I'm not the best at P.E. so I couldn't really do much before but with Boccia I feel more
