Major League Bocce Winter Season 2015

Major League Bocce Houston’s winter season features six weekly matches at Brooklyn Athletic Club and at Cottonwood in Oak Forest.

Brooklyn Athletic Club will host Tuesday play from Tuesday, February 3 through Tuesday, March 10, 2015. Playoffs will be on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

On Wednesdays, Cottonwood will host the second league, starting on Wednesday, February 4 and ending Wednesday, March 11, 2015. The Wednesday league’s playoffs will be held at Cottonwood on Wednesday, March 25, 2015.

An end-of-season blowout party will be scheduled for both leagues during the week of March 31, 2015.

The Game of Bocce – Old and New

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.

Beyond taking home a win, people join the bocce league to make new friends, play for charity and provide a weekly excuse to get together and play at a favorite local watering hole.

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.
