  1. The Boccia sport rules are modified from the Boccia International Sports Federation rules and regulations. 

  2. This is an individual only competition, no pairs. 

  3. Before the match, flip a coin. The winner chooses either red or blue-colored balls to play with, and the loser gets the remaining choice. 

  4. Start of the game: The red team will throw the white target ball (jack) onto the court. 

  5. The red team will follow their throw with a red-colored ball trying to get as close to the white target ball as possible.

  6. Then the blue team will throw one or more balls to try and get closest to the white target ball. When a blue ball is closest to the jack, it is then the red team’s turn to throw. (Similar to golf, team furthest away from the target point throws.)   

  7. After all balls have been played in this rotation stated in rule 6, the score is determined based on the number of consecutive colored balls closest to the white target ball. 

  8. End 2 starts with the blue team throwing the target ball onto the court. Same rotation of turn is played as stated in rule 6. 

  9. There are 4 ends to a match. 

  10. Total all points from all 4 ends and the highest scoring points WINS!

  • Athletes must wear tennis shoes. No dress shoes or flip-flops are permitted.
