Bocce is an old world sport that combines bowling, marbles and the precision of golf. The sport takes a great deal of skill as a player tosses a two pound ball down a 76 foot long dirt court. Whether aiming for the pallini (a small white sphere that looks like a cue ball) or trying to bump the opposition's ball out of the way, it certainly is more difficult than it looks.
Teams consisting of 4 players can register through July 17, 2015. Space is limited and is on a first come, first served basis. For more information about the bocce tournament, please call the Department of Citizen Services at 351-2877.
