Driven by the desire to make friends out of strangers and fueled by Peroni & Blue Moon specials, DC Bocce League offers weekly bocce ball matches played between multi-person, co-ed teams. The season includes weekly raffles after games at our sponsor bars, a city-wide end of season party and tournament, and the best team t-shirts in DC social sports. Plus, unlike most other rec leagues, you stand on the same side of the court as your opponents, so socializing is the norm.
