INTRODUCTION Boccia is a competitive game that can be played one-on-one, in pairs, or with teams of three. It is played on a specially marked court, usually with a hard surface.

Wingdings 2:

The goal of the game is for players/teams to throw game balls so that they get them as close as possible to a special target ball ( white). The game begins with a player throwing the white target ball onto the court.


Opponents then take turns trying to throw their game balls as close as possible to the target ball.  When the game balls have all been thrown, a referee determines the points awarded to individual or teams based on measurement of how near the game balls are to the target ball.

The game is similar to: Bowls Bocce (Italy) Petanque or even Boules (France).
