Service description to be replaced with the following:
We are the National Governing Body (NGB) for boccia in England. We are responsible for all aspects of the sport in this country, from beginner to expert, providing for all levels of participation.

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.

Sounds simple? It is 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 – 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.

If you are new to the game and looking to play or become involved in boccia, visit the Boccia England website to find your nearest club by using our club finder.
