Once associated with older Italian gents, the game of bocce has been revitalized. Casual yet competitive, it makes for a great social sport for a number of reasons: men and women are on equal footing, age is not an issue, and no prerequisite athletic ability is required. If you can roll a ball, you can play.

Games last 45 minutes and are played to 14 points. Before, during and following games, league members are invited to enjoy beer and food specials.
