Featured Surface -- Nova Bocce

Did you know...

Bocce is closely related to British bowls and French pétanque, all having developed from games played in the Roman Empire. It was developed into its present form in Italy (where it is called bocce, the plural of the Italian word boccia which means 'bowl' in the sport sense), it is played around Europe and also in regions to which Italians have migrated. The popularity of the game spread first amongst descendants of Italian migrants but has slowly spread into the wider community.

Bocce is traditionally played on natural soil and asphalt courts. Bocce balls can be made of wood and various alternates and are spherical with no inbuilt bias. A game 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 jack, and the Bocce ball is normally thrown using an underarm action. This is generally used to knock either the jack or another ball away to attain a more favorable position. Tactics can get quite complex when players have sufficient control over the ball to throw or roll it accurately. The United States Bocce Federation (USBF) says there are one million players in the USA and that Bocce is the third most popular game in the world after soccer and golf.
