Welcome to the website of the Great Britain Boccia Federation (GBBF)
Boccia is a Paralympic sport for athletes with disabilities that have a major impact on motor skills. Boccia is a target ball sport belonging to the same family as petanque and bowls.
The GBBF was formed in 2007 with the aim of bringing together the home country agencies responsible for the delivery of elite level Boccia in Great Britain; CP Sport England and Wales, Scottish Disability Sport and Disability Sport Wales.
The GBBF's primary role is the selection and development of the GB Boccia squad. The GBBF is responsible for sending a GB team to European Championships, World Championships and World Cups to qualify teams and pairs to represent Great Britain at the Paralympic Games.
Great Britain sent a full team of nine players to the 2012 Paralympic Games in London and won two medals. David Smith won Silver in the BC1 Individual competition and the BC1/BC2 Team of Smith, Nigel Murray, Dan Bentley and Zoe Robinson won Bronze.
