LOCAL COMPETITION DESCRIPTIONS

BOCCE

Bocce is played with eight large balls and one smaller target or object ball called the pallina. There are four balls to a side of team, and they are generally made in two colors to distinguish the balls of one team from those of the opposing team.  


The pallina is rolled to start the game. The player tossing the pallina must roll the first ball. The opposing team will then deliver the bocce balls. The side whose ball is closest to the pallina is awarded 1 point for each ball closer to the pallina then the opposing team. (Ball delivery is rolling, tossing, bouncing, banking and rolling down the ramp.)
