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 at that time; CP Sport England and Wales (Boccia England now have responsibility), Scottish Disability Sport and Disability Sport Wales. Disability Sport Northern Ireland are now also represented on the Board.
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 BISFed sanctioned international competitions to qualify teams, pairs and individuals 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.
