Boccia is a game of strategy and accuracy. It is played by people with cerebral palsy or impairments that affect motor skills. It is a sport similar to indoor bowls or 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 (the jack). The player, pair or team with the most balls near the jack is the winner.SessionsThe ParaFed Canterbury Boccia Club provides a session on Saturday's for players to learn the game, work on their skills and have practice games. New members are welcome and the club has a range of equipment to use.Times (Feb - Oct)Saturday10.30am - 12.30pmBishopdale YMCA13a Bishopdale Court, Bishopdale Mall, ChristchurchCoordinatorsCraig GadsbyAlisha MillCoach Matt MillClubParaFed Canterbury Boccia ClubCosts$90 - Boccia Club Fees$10 - Boccia Club League Entry$40 - ParaFed Canterbury SubscriptionCompetitionsBoccia provides opportunities to compete at school events, the Halberg Games, the Boccia Club League, Boccia Regionals and the Nationals Championships.
