Some projects are so fun that we have to share them with everyone we know! Our fantastic Landscape Construction team has been working on a major residential project that includes a bocce ball court. If you happen to be on a TV trivia show anytime soon, here’s some bocce ball trivia that could get you closer to the big prize!
- A form of bocce ball dates back to the Roman Empire; its present-day form was developed in Italy & is commonly played in Europe.
- The bocce ball court in these pictures is 90′ long by 12′ wide.
- Bocce ball is played with eight large balls & one smaller target ball called a jack or “pallina.”
- Games are between two teams of 1-4 players per team. There are four bocce balls per team.
- The pallina & bocce balls must be delivered underhand.
There are a bunch more rules but the important thing is that bocce ball is fun and can be played while holding your favorite cold beverage in your non-throwing hand. That’s our kind of sport! We also installed running lights in case an intense game goes into the night.
