Big Canoe Bocce Ball
& Bocce League

Big Canoe has about 150 members who play two seasons each year. It’s a lot of fun and very social! The league is always looking for new members. Members have to be full or part time residents of Big Canoe.

Bocce is a social game that does not require a great deal of physical prowess. It is a sport that combines socialization and sportsmanship among people of all ages and physical skills. Big Canoe Bocce is played on three courts located at the Wildcat Recreation area. Anyone is welcome to play on these courts; however we would encourage you to join the bocce league for to really enjoy this game.

Bocce is played using four green, four red and one white ball which is smaller and called the Palino. The idea of the game is to come closest to the Palino with the red or green balls. Each team consists of four players, two on each end of the court, and they take turns rolling their color ball and whoever ends up with the most of their color balls closest to the Palino get the points for that round. It’s that easy! It does get interesting when the other teams knock your ball or the Palino away and takes the points away from your team, but that makes it more interesting and fun!

You only need four team members to join the league or you can join as a substitute to take the place of regular team members that may not be able to play a match on their team schedule.  During the scheduled season matches, team members bring a snack to share and their choice of beverage and it is a great way to socialize, meet new people from the community, make new friends and just have fun!

Each season consists of an opening day with lunch and a fun tournament with mixed teams pulled from a basket and closes with championship games played by the top conference leaders and then an awards banquet where there is a nice dinner and prizes awarded to the championship winners and conference leaders
