Boccia can be played by individuals, pairs, or teams of three. The aim of the game is to throw leather balls (red or blue) as close as they can to a white target ball, or jack similar to french boules or petanques.
The jack is thrown first, then the first two regular balls are played (first, the player who threw the jack then the opposing side), after which the side furthest away from the jack goes next in an attempt to either get closer to the jack. This can be played indoors using pairs of socks instead. Make sure adults throw from further away (or are blindfolded).
