Boccia courts; outdoor and indoor

Boccia is a ball sport, the Italian version of boules, which pits two competitors or teams against each other. The aim of the game is to place your own balls as close to the smaller ball (pallino) that was thrown earlier. You also try to hit the opponent’s balls away (raffa or volo) from the pallino. The game is played on a flat court, either outdoors or indoors.History of bocciaSimilar to
