The classic Italian lawn game comes inside and cools off at Main Event. Bocce Ball is a competitive precision sport that's been around almost forever. It's easy to play and addictive fun for all ages. So grab your favorite drink, pick your team and let's roll. 


  • Bocce is similar to bowling, but played on a smaller hard-surface court with backstops at each end

  • In the old days, players used balls made of bronze; today resin balls are used

  • You can play 1-on-1, or in teams of two or four

  • Your goal is to roll your four colored balls closer to the white Pallino – or Jack – ball than your opponents

  • Your aim and precision is the key to winning; that and knocking your opponent's balls out of range

  • The word "bocce" comes from the Italian word for "ball," "bowl" or "boss" depending on whom you ask

  • In the United States, the word is pronounced the same as "baci," which means "kisses" in Italian

Bocce Ball is the perfect addition to:

  • Happy hour events

  • Birthday celebrations

  • Company and group outings

  • Family events with kids and adults 

Bocce Ball is available at select locations; please see list.
