About us

Boccia Busters is a dynamic and innovative social enterprise developed and run by disabled people, which is committed to supporting disabled people and their carers, families and friends in Gloucestershire to have access to the sport of Boccia and its associated benefits. These benefits include increased physical activity levels, improved health and wellbeing, the development of new friendships and social networks, teamwork and skill development, and improved mental health.

What is Boccia?

Boccia is a disability sport where players aim to propel leather balls close to a target ball - 'the jack'. Two sides - 'red and blue' - compete as individuals, pairs or a team of three. Points are added up over the course of a match to find a winner.

The sport involves technical skill and tactics. A ball can be rolled, thrown, kicked or pushed down a ramp. If a player cannot push the ball with their hands, assistive devices can be used for example a head pointer. VI boards are also available for those with a visual impairment.

Boccia Busters, takes the sport of boccia into the community. If you would like more information, please contact Rachel Child on 07525151026. We play all over the county but presently Cheltenham and Gloucester.
