Bocce is a yard game of Italian heritage and a fun activity for all ages and athletic abilities. The rules are simple, making it a fun and easy game to play. We encourage all members to try the game, watch a game and meet other members in this inviting social setting. Members have the opportunity to join a league or to stop by with their own group.
 

League Play 2021-2022

The time has come for us to safely return to the fun of our competitive bocce league play. There will be three, six-week sessions this coming season. Mixed league play will be held on Sunday and Monday afternoons. Men’s and Ladies’ leagues will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Matches will begin at 4 PM and last 1 hour with 15 minutes for transition. We moved dates and times to work around as many other events and entertainments as possible.
Teams of 4 to 8 players can sign up after selecting a name and a captain. The captain should then email her/his contact information, player names and team name to events@forestglengcc.com Individuals or couples who would like to form teams or act as league subs should email their information along with the league that they are interested in. We will be posting lists for each on the Playpass site and hosting a Bocce Connection Reception before the sign-up deadline to give everyone a chance to find a team.
Following the fall session, we will again review the results and the experience to see what adjustments should be made for the two winter sessions.

BOCCE RULES- Simplified for FGGCC league play
 
HOW TO PLAY
The sport is played with one small ball (pallino) and eight larger balls (bocce), four for each team. The pallino is thrown first and becomes the target. Then each bocce is thrown with the goal of placing it as close to the pallino as possible.

PLAYERS
Each game is played with two teams of four players, two players are positioned at either end. Players must stay at their end of the court for the entire game but may be repositioned for any subsequent games.

OBJECT OF THE GAME

The object of the game is for one team to get as many of their bocce balls as possible closer to the pallino than the opposing team’s closest ball. One point is awarded for each closer ball. Then the process is repeated. The first team that scores 11 points wins the game.
