FACILITIES > BOCCE BALL
Bocce is an international game and sport. Second only to soccer, it is the most played sport in the world. It is one of the earliest known games although the exact time and place of origin are difficult to pinpoint. The game was originally played with polished stones and involved tossing the stones with the intent of coming close to a smaller target stone. Today, bocce ball is a calming, competitive way to spend a few hours outdoors in the pleasant company of friends.
ARD boasts four new outdoor tournament-size bocce courts at Recreation Park. Each of these courts are 12 feet wide by 80 feet long, all within a solid concrete surface with synthetic turf as the playing surface.
Eight week leagues will feature teams of four facing off once a week. Teams wll play in a round robin format, culminiating with a one match playoff between the top two finishers. All play will be according to US Bocce Federation Open Rules. Register now on our website: auburnrec.com/classes_adultsports.php
