You know Boccia?
Boccia is a sport that can be practiced indoors or outdoors and is designed to be practiced by people with disabilities.
It is currently a Paralympic sport, however its practice has grown to other populations, being currently practiced at school level and also by the older population.
In its Paralympic form, it is practiced by people with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and other motor deficiencies of non-cerebral origin. The game is played with 13 balls, 6 red, 6 blue and 1 white (jack), in a field with 12.5m in length and 6m in width.
Objectives and General Rules of Boccia
The objective of the boccia is to bring the largest number of color balls (red and blue) of the white ball (jack ball), which implies high levels of accuracy. In addition, the boccia also requires technical skill and tactical intelligence, which make each game an exciting unpredictability.
The competition is mixed, and can be played individually (one against one) or collective. The collective competition can be of pairs (two against two) and of team (three against three).
The game consists of 4 partials (if played individually or in pairs), and 6 partials (if played as a team). At the end of each partial, the balls of the same color closest to the white are counted. The sum of all the partials will dictate the winner.
