Boccia is a Paralympic sport for people with physical and learning disabilities. It is a target sport, similar to bowls, but played indoors and with leather balls. Everyone plays seated so it is suitable for wheelchair and non-wheelchair users.
Teams are made up of 3-6 individuals, with some groups entering multiple teams!
