LET'S PLAY BOCCE! -- CANCELLED
Village Member Bill Welty invites you to come play or learn how to play
Bocce Ball at his home!
A fun game that anyone can play.
Bocce is traditionally played on soft court. The Italian ball sport can be conducted between two players, or two teams of two, three, or four. A match is started by a randomly chosen side being given the opportunity to throw a smaller ball, the pallino ('bullet' or 'little ball') in Italian, from one end of the court into a zone from the far end of the court. The object is to get each team member's ball closest to the pallino. The team with the closest ball will score points. The team with the highest score wins!
According to Health Fitness.com,Seniors can benefit greatly from Bocce Ball Play which has a number of advantages to offer such as:
- Social Activity
- Strategic Planning
- Improved coordination
- Relieves stress
- Time spent outdoors
- Increased confidence
- Light cardio
- Improved Mood
So come on, get your game on and get out there and play or learn how to play. This is a great opportunity!
Bill has a backyard court that is much smaller than an official Bocce court but is still a good place to play!
