This is the National Governing Body (NGB) for boccia in England.
Boccia is a disability sport that tests muscle control and accuracy. Players propel balls to land close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends. Each side has six balls (red or blue) each end to try and score points. Points are accumulated over the course of a match to find a winner.
It is simple to get started, but the tactics of the sport offer both tension and excitement as the game plays put.
A ball can be rolled, thrown or kicked. If a player is unable to throw or kick the ball, they can use a ramp. If players are unable to release the ball with their hands, they can use assistive devices such as head/hand pointer.
The sport is played indoors on a 12.5m by 6m court, usually in a sports hall but any suitable flat playing area can be used.
