About the game:

A match consists of four ends in the individuals and pairs competitions and of six ends in the team division. Each end continues until both teams have played all of their balls.

The match is started by throwing the white target ball or the "jack" into the playing area. The same player also rolls the first Boccia ball as close as possible to the jack. The athletes use their hands, feet or an assistive device where required, to propel the balls. Thereafter the opposing team throws until they get a ball closer to the jack or until they have thrown all of their team's balls. Play then returns to the first team. The end continues in this manner until both teams have thrown all of their balls.

In team competition, a playing rotation is maintained throughout the game. Scoring is done at the conclusion of an end. One point is awarded for each ball that is closest to the jack and "inside" any opponent's ball. If two balls of the same color are closer to the jack than any of the balls of the opposing side, the first will receive two points. If two or more balls of different colours are at the same distance from the jack and there is no other ball closer to it, then each side receives one point per ball.

After the completion of all ends, the individual, pair or team with the highest total score is declared winner. If the scores of both teams are equal, a tiebreak consisting of one additional end is played.

Our Universal Paddling Seat was designed with one purpose in mind:  to open the sport of paddling to everyone.  Regardless of the level of support needed, the seat provides as much or as little as a paddler needs.

The back structure consists of pelvic, lateral, lumbar and upper-back supports.  The back has several vertical adjustments to fit different torso lengths and types.  The upper unit (the upper-back rest and laterals) can be adjusted independently or removed completely, for those who do not need the high- level support.

Tilt adjust of the back structure allows the paddler’s center of gravity to shift rearward far enough to enable those with minimal or no abdominal support to paddle.
