About World Boccia

The World Boccia Strategy Focuses on a Small Number of Priorities
Leadership and Governance
Effective sports governance requires strong leadership, integrity and good judgement. This in turn will lead to better decision-making and increased transparency and accountability.
High quality pathways, structures and processes are critical to the growth of the sport and will provide the opportunity for athletes to achieve to the best of their ability. A vibrant international competition structure is essential to the growth of the sport.
Marketing and Promotion
