Basic layout and rules for the game of bocce.
Bocce on the Net
Since I can't find any other bocce resources on the Net, I'll just have to put up what I know about the game and what I can glean from the rule book. So, all you folks who've e-mailed me over the last couple of months, here ya go! Bocce has been around since the Roman Empire and conjures visions of old Italian men wiling away warm Mediterranean afternoons discussing politics and drinking red wine. I'm neither old nor Italian, but I have wiled away many an afternoon with friends discussing politics and drinking beer while playing bocce ;-) Bocce is closely related to lawn bowling. To the best of my knowledge, the biggest difference is that bocce is played on a hard-surface court with a backstop at each end, while lawn bowling is played on grass with a relatively free-form "court". By this definition many folks are lawn bowling since very few constructed bocce courts exist in the U.S. The following set of rules are condensed from the official guide published by the International Bocce Association. Many variations exist, and I play a very relaxed set of rules in keeping with tradition. For tournament play, consult the official guide (see end of document). The Courts For lawn bowling, you don't really use a court. Just choose any space of lawn that's large and reasonably level. Then step off about 20 adult paces and use that as a good playing distance.

Bocce is a game of skill and strategy. The object is for one team to get as many of their balls (boccia) closer to the pallina (the smallest ball) than the opposing team's closest ball. Mario Palminteri, Special Olympics Italy, competes at the bocce singles event at the 2003 Special Olympics World Summer Games. [Photo by Gerry McGuinness, IRELAND OUT] There may be anywhere from two to four to eight players on a team. Each player is given two balls. Each player must then take turns rolling (lagging) the ball toward the pallina ball (also known as the jack, cue, beebee etc.), which has already been thrown onto the field. The players are given points for the balls rolled closest to the pallina ball. Players may also throw on the fly (volo), striking the ball to move the point ball. Balls, including the pallina, may also be displaced by the balls of other players. Special Olympics athletes can also participate in Unified Sports® bocce competition. Special Olympics Unified Sports is a program that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition.

Table of Contents
Bocce is the Italian version of lawn bowling. The earliest known form of the sport was a game played in the Italian Alps, early in the Christian Era, in which stones were tossed at a target stonenot necessarily to hit it, but to land as close as possible to it. This was a major amusement for Roman soldiers, who spread it through the empire. Balls were eventually substituted for the stones and they were usually rolled rather than tossed. Three distinct types of lawn bowling developed through the centuries. In France, the game was known as boules , from the Classical Latin word for ball. A different form of the sport became known in England as "lawn bowls". Bocce, also known as boccia, derived its name from the Vulgar Latin word for ball, bottia Italian immigrants brought bocce to the United States. Its original centers of popularity were New York City and San Francisco because of their large Italian-American populations. But, as newer generations grew away from the sport, bocce declined and seemed in danger of extinction in this country. The sport experienced a small resurgence, mainly in California, during the 1970s and it's grown rapidly during the last decade. The center of the sport in the U. S. is Martinez, California, which has more than a thousand competitors in league play and many more who simply play for fun.

Dino s bocce Club Pizza has been a tradition in Buffalo, NY for over 50 years.
document.write(""); Since 1946, when Dino Pacciotti and his brother-in-law Michael Sacco purchased a bar on Hickory Street called " Bocce Club ," and began serving pizza snacks, Bocce's has been known for serving the best pizza in Buffalo.
Always innovators, Bocce Club was one of the first to offer take-out pizza. By the mid-1970s, Bocce Club had introduced the first half-baked pizza for those who wanted fresh-cooked pies on their own timetables. And Bocce's always uses the freshest, most natural ingredients, from 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese to dough that is made from scratch daily!
Today, Bocce's partially baked pizzas are shipped FedEx overnight all over the United States.

Bocce Rules Welcome bocce lover! There is a good chance you reached this site by searching for "bocce ball rules" or some variation thereof. If this is the case, we would like to first clear up a common misconception about the name of the game. In fact, the word "ball" is unnecessary when referring to the game of bocce. Playing a game of "bocce ball" is grammatically similar to playing a round of "golf ball." This site was purposely given its incorrect name as an experiment, and to help to educate bocce fans all over the world! Bocce is without a doubt one of the most exciting and enjoyable sports. You may be interested in playing bocce ball competitively, or you might just want to play a friendly game in your back yard. No matter your level of competition, the rules of bocce are relatively basic, and allow you to start playing and enjoying this wonderful game within minutes.
Open Bocce
Bocce Ball Set Open Bocce is the most popular form of bocce by casual players. The great thing about open bocce is that it can be played almost anywhere there is open space. This includes grassy surfaces such as a front lawn or back yard, dirt surfaces, sandy surfaces such as the beach, and even paved surfaces like parking lots. The places that you can play bocce are only limited to your imagination. Try playing bocce on a surface with hills or slopes to add a new element of strategy to your game.
