What is Bocce?

Bocce is one of the most inclusive sports around. It provides a great opportunity to promote sport in the community.

Bocce is a ball sport belonging to the boules sport family, closely related to bowls and pétanque with a common ancestry from ancient games played in the Roman Empire.

Club Italia has competition standard facilities. We have 8 courts. We are affiliated with ‘Bocce Victoria’ who provide resources and coaching.

What equipment do we use?

The game is traditionally played with brass balls weighing approximately 1kg with grooves to differentiate different players. In an attempt to make the game more visual for players and spectators coloured composite balls are now used for social bocce.

What are the basic rules?

The aim is to get your ball closest to the jack. The following formats of the game are played:
– Traditional Game
– Progressive throw
– Precision throw
