BISFed received good news following today’s meeting of the International Paralympic Committee’s Global Board in Abu Dhabi.
In total (i.e. for all 22 summer sports), the IPC has negotiated an additional 50 athlete slots in Tokyo (as compared with Rio.) Of these, Boccia has been allocated additional 8 slots, meaning that there will be 116 boccia athletes in Tokyo.
Speaking from Abu Dhabi where he is attending the IPC’s General Assembly, BISFed President David Hadfield said: “I am delighted with this outcome which follows partly as a result of our efforts to grow boccia around the world. One of our main objectives is to give more opportunities to more athletes, and I am already looking forward to seeing new athletes competing in Tokyo. We will now work with the IPC to finalise the qualifying criteria for Tokyo as soon as possible.”

Most welcome to all in PARA BOCCIA SORTS WELFARE SOCIETY.
Boccia was practiced for many years as a leisure activity until it was introduced at the New York 1984 Paralympic Games as a competitive sport.
It is practiced in more than 50 countries by those with cerebral palsy or related neurological conditions involving a wheelchair.
All events are mixed gender and feature individual, pair and team competitions. The game consists of four rounds in individuals and pairs competitions and of six rounds in the team competition.
The BISFed Competition Committee can now announce the provisional schedule for the 2018 season. Final details are subject to negotiation with Host Organising Committees and there are 4 events that will be announced shortly.
The season will begin in March at the Regional Open Championships in Ine City, Japan. This will be the first BISFed sanctioned event to take place in Japan and will be their first opportunity to showcase to the boccia world exactly what they are capable of ahead of the 2020 Paralympic Games.
Veteran hosts in Montreal, Povoa, Poznan and Dubai will all once again welcome athlete in 2018 and Chinese Taipei will host their first sanctioned event in Taoyuan in November. The Asian Para Games in Jakarta will see athletes from across Asia descend on Indonesia in October during what is sure to be another busy year for Boccia!
