About Boccia England

Boccia England is the national governing body for Boccia.

Boccia (pronounced 'Bot-cha') is a sport similar to bowls for athletes with a disability.

Boccia can be played by individuals, pairs, or teams of three. The aim of the game is to throw leather balls - coloured red or blue as close as you can to a white target ball, or jack. The balls can be moved with hands or feet, or, sometimes, with an assistive device It is played indoors on a court similar in size to a badminton court.

At the end of each round, or end, the distance of the balls closest to the jack is measured, and points awarded accordingly - one point for each ball which is closer to the jack than the opponent's closest ball. The team/player with the highest number of points at the end of play is the winner.
