The sport for everyone
Boccia was practised for many years as a leisure activity before being introduced at the New York 1984 Paralympics as a competitive sport. It is one of only two Paralympic sports that do not have an Olympic counterpart, alongside Goalball.
Competitive pathways in Boccia are reserved for athletes with disabilities that have a major impact on motor skills, but this mind game of strategic throws and tactics can be enjoyed by almost anyone, and as such is one of the most accessible sports.
