There are three classes of membership to BISFed

Full Members

National organisations recognised as having the responsibility for the sport of Boccia within their countries. Full Members are expected to maintain affiliation with their country’s National Paralympic Committee and are eligible to host the major international Boccia competitions which are sanctioned by BISFed. Full Members have voting rights, and only one organisation per country may become a Full Member. The cost of this membership is £425 for the first 2 years and £850 thereafter.

Affiliate Members

National organisations responsible for developing the sport of Boccia where there is no organisation which meets the requirements to be a Full Member. If there are multiple organisations responsible for Boccia in a country, then those organisations which are not the Full Member for that country may become Affiliate Members. Affiliate Members are eligible to host national and international Boccia competitions which are sanctioned by BISFed, but do not have voting rights. The cost of this membership is £500 per year.

Applications for membership must be accompanied by a completed membership application form, a copy of the applicant’s constitution and a list of the organisation’s directors. Download the application form here:
