Boccia is a disability sport where players aim to propel balls close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends.
Points are accumulated over the course of a match to find a winner. A ball can be rolled, thrown or kicked. If a player is unable to throw or kick the ball, they can use a ramp. If players are unable to release the ball with their hands, they can use assistive devices.
The Lord’s Taverners U19 National Boccia Championships is a schools competition for young people with a physical disability. Winning teams progress from county heats to one of 12 regional competitions, with the winner from each region competing in the national finals.
Dates for the 2018 season will be announced later this year.
