Who Can Make Gains with the New Age Boccia Set and Pusher Bundle?
Boccia is a fun and exciting sport becoming more and more popular with an increasing number of people. First played at the Paralympic Games in 1984, it is now a recognised sport at the games and is experiencing a boom in popularity. This bundle makes the game accessible to users with limited levels of mobility, providing them with the opportunity to be on a level playing field with all other participants.
High Quality Boccia Balls
This set is supplied with 13 boccia balls: 6 red and 6 blue to differentiate between the two teams at play, and one white jack. The balls are hand stitched from a high quality synthetic leather and filled with plastic pellets to maintain an even weight and roll. These balls are made to an optimum size and mass of 270mm in diameter and 275 grams in weight.
Lightweight Aluminium Pushers
The pushers included in this bundle 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.
Each pusher is fitted with an aluminium telescopic handle, allowing players to adjust their pusher to their desired height. The pushers are 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 like the pushers included in this bundle, making this sport accessible to almost everyone.
