Boccia ball is a fun and exciting game popular with an increasing number of people, but for many impaired players, placing their shots accurately and with the correct force can be difficult if not impossible. The New Age Boccia Pushers allow players in wheelchairs and with limited hand movement to easily place their shots where they want to. Each set of Boccia Pushers comes with two pushers, one red and one blue for each team.

Who Can Make Gains with the New Age Boccia Pushers?

These pushers are designed to make the game of boccia accessible to all players, regardless of their level of mobility. Wheelchair users, those who find it hard to bend down and people with limited hand movement may not be able to roll their ball with adequate force and precision, and so these pushers are made to facilitate that process.

Lightweight Aluminium

Each pusher is fitted with an aluminium telescopic handle, allowing players to adjust their pusher to their desired height. The pushers are only 250 grams in weight each, allowing them to be easily manipulated by virtually any user. The plastic heads of these assistive pushers are specially designed to fit around the boccia balls in New Age Boccia Sets.

How to Play Boccia

Boccia is a relatively new sport similar to bocce, brought into the Paralympics in 1984. Played by individuals, pairs or teams of three, the aim of the game is to move the balls as close as possible to the white ball, or jack, which is thrown first. The aim of each turn is to either get closer to the jack than your opponent, or knock their balls away.

The team farthest away from the jack plays first, and each round ends once both teams have thrown all their balls. The winning team of each round earns one point for every ball closer to the jack than their opponent's closest ball. Balls can be moved with the hands, feet or an assistive device, making this sport accessible to almost everyone.
