About Boccia
Boccia is a game of strategy and accuracy. It is play by people with cerebral palsy or impairments that affect motor skills.

Boccia is a sport similar to indoor bowls and pétanque. It is played on a flat, smooth surface, where players must throw or roll leather balls as close as possible to a white target ball, known as the jack. The player, pair or team with the most balls near the jack is the winner.
