ABOUT BOCCIA

Boccia (italian “sphere, ball”) is a Paralympic sport for people with the most severe conditions of the locomotor system. It is a sports precision game that has features of other games, like billiards, curling and bowling. Since 1984 it is a part of the Paralympic Games program.

The initial purpose of this game was rehabilitation of people with severe forms of cerebral palsy. Later players with other locomotor conditions, like myopathy or spine injury, joined the game.

Depending on their physical conditions, athletes are divided into four classes: BC1, BC2, BC3 and BC4.

After a three-year break, the 3d Ukrainian boccia championship took place in Odesa on May 16-19, 2016. A total of 38 athletes took part in it, representing 8 regions: Kyiv, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Poltava, Kherson, Mykolaiv and Cherkasy.

According to the results of this championship a team of winners and medallists was formed in every class. These athletes will represent Ukraine in an international event POLSKA BOCCIA 2016, on October 6-10.
