Bocce is an Italian game of skill and strategy. The basic principle of the sport is to roll a bocce ball closest to the target ball, which is called a pallina (the smallest ball). The sport allows athletes the opportunity to have social contact, develop physically and to gain self-confidence.
Our bocce program has events for singles and doubles competition.
While less well known in the US, Bocce is a very fun game of skill, and is played all over Europe. Here locally, we play a Fall season, practicing in Burke Lake from August through the Fall State Games.
