Try Para-sports: Boccia

What is Boccia?
Born in Europe, Boccia is a sport created for people with severe cerebral palsy and people with similarly severe limb dysfunction and is an official Paralympic event.
Players compete by throwing or rolling six balls, colored red or blue, as close as possible to a white target ball, called a jack ball, either directly or by hitting other balls.
If a player‘s impairment prevents them from throwing the balls, they can participate by using a special ramp to convey their intentions to their caregiver. The game is a familiar sport that people with and without impairments ranging in severity can enjoy together.
