Boccia at the 2004 Summer Paralympics took place in the Ano Liossia Olympic Hall in Athens. Contestants were categorised as follows:

  • BC2: players with cerebral palsy not requiring an aide.
  • BC3: players with a very severe locomotor dysfunction, using an assistive device and assisted by an aide, who will remain in the player's box but who must keep his/her back to the court and eyes averted from play.
  • BC4: players with other locomotor disabilities, without an aide.
