In 2019, the World Boccia Development Committee ratified a shot-type terminology update that has been introduced across the sport of Boccia. The language change is in aid of creating an internationally known sporting terminology that is uniform and recognizable around the world. It is of importance that coaches and all those who deliver boccia, are knowledgeable of the terminology and their outcomes on the court.” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQwhQFhO9_o
