Boccia is a paralympic sport and is a game of strategy and skill. It’s played two sides against each other as individuals, a pair or as a team of three. One side has six red balls and the other has six blue balls. Individual play with six balls and four ends. Pairs play with three balls each player and four ends and teams play two balls each players and six ends. One side plays white ball called “Jack” onto the court and then place their first ball.

Once all the balls have been played one side receives a point for every ball they have nearer to the Jack.
