Boccia

Boccia is similar to the game of boules and is played on a smooth, flat surface.  The game is played from a seated position and the aim of the game is for a player to place as many of his or her balls closer to the target ball (the jack) than their opponent.  It is a target game that relies on skill, accuracy and tactics as opposed to body size and strength. People of all ages and abilities can play the sport, but in particular, the game is very inclusive for players with physical disabilities regardless of their mobility levels.

Perth & Kinross Disability Sport have started a new Boccia Club at the Academy of Sport and Wellbeing, the new state of the art sports facility at Perth College - sessions start weekly from 26 January 2017 and are the next step to develop your game/improve your technical and tactical knowledge, once you have a good understanding of the game/rules.  Cost is £5 for the two hour session.  Please note the session on Thursday 8 June is cancelled as there is an event at the College.  The class will return on Thursday 15 June at the new time each week of 4.30pm-6pm (cost will be £3.75).  Download the flyer for further information

You can currently take part in a boccia class at Bell's Sports Centre both during the day and early evening.  Bell's Sports Centre has boccia markings in the main arena area and coaching hall.  Classes are available:

  • 1.30pm-2.30pm, Tuesdays

Other Live Active Leisure facilities with boccia markings are Live Active Auchterarder.  You can book any of the courts independently but you will need to check availability with each facility before coming along.  Apply for a Live Active card and save money each time you visit - this can be obtained from any Live Active Leisure facility.  If you need a carer to come with you, then check out Live Active's care statement.
