What is Boccia?
Boccia is a Paralympic sport that is similar to lawn bowls or bocce ball. It is a precision sport that is played by athletes with physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy or spinal cord injuries.
The game is played on a flat, rectangular court that is marked with a series of lines and squares. Players throw, roll, or kick a ball, called a “boccia,” towards a target ball, called the “jack,” which is placed at the other end of the court. The objective is to get as many of your balls as close to the target ball as possible.
Boccia is a sport that requires a high level of skill, strategy, and concentration. Players must carefully plan their shots and consider factors such as the trajectory and speed of their balls, as well as the position of their opponent’s balls.
The sport is played in individual, pairs, and team events. In individual events, players compete against one another in a head-to-head format. In pairs and team events, players work together to achieve the best overall score.
Boccia is a popular sport that is played by athletes all over the world. It is an inclusive sport that is open to athletes of all ability levels, and it is a great way for people with disabilities to participate in a competitive and enjoyable physical activity
