It is a ball sport belonging to the “boules” family.
Bocce is traditionally played on natural soil and asphalt courts.
A game can be conducted between two players, or two teams of two, three, or four.
A match is started by a randomly chosen side being given the opportunity to throw a smaller ball, the jack from one end of the court. into the playing zone. The side that first attempted to place the jack is given the opportunity to bowl first. Once the first bowl has taken place, the other side has the opportunity to bowl. From then on, the side which does not have the ball closest to the jack has a chance to bowl, up until one side or the other has used their four balls. The scoring team receives one point for each of their balls that is closer to the jack than the closest ball of the other team. The length of a game is typically from 7 to 13 points.
It is a pleasant game to play with friends and family.
Our bocce balls are available to our visitors on Fazenda’s sand court.
