Bocce Ball

The league is scheduled to begin Monday, April 17. There are 25 teams in the league and all teams will play eight regular season matches. Because of the odd number of teams in the league, one team may receive a bye each week of the regular season while others (the Outsiders, Chase's Aces, High Rollers & Rock N' Rollers) will play two matches in a week.

Matches will be played on weekday (Mon.-Thur.) evenings at 6:00pm and 7:00pm at both the Veterans Park and Drexel Lodge courts.

VETERANS PARK - Lawrence Road in Broomall

Court A - Closest to the walking trail

Court B - Closest to the field

There is a fence around both courts with a gate at each end. 


DREXEL LODGE PARK - West Chester Pike (Train Museum) in Newtown Square

Please park in designated spots only or in gravel parking lot.

Court A - Closest to the road

Court B - Closest to the field

The equipment containers at both locations contain two sets of bocce balls, measuring tapes, a first aid kit, blank registration forms and rules. They also contain pegs for the new scoreboards located at the center of each court. Please return all equipment, including scoreboard pegs, to the containers when finished and secure containers, gates and shed. 

I would encourage everyone to review the rules and notes. Each match will consist of two games played to 11 points. Teams will be awarded one point in the standings for each game they win. The match time limit will remain 60 minutes. A team representative should report results (final score of each game) to as soon as possible. Match results and updated standings will be posted on the website as soon as possible. Once at the site, click on the bocce tab, and then the standings / results link to view.

THE FIRST TWELVE (12) TEAMS BY POINTS STANDING WILL QUALIFY FOR THE PLAYOFFS which will begin at the conclusion of the regular season. In addition, if two or more teams are tied for the final (12th place) playoff spot, those tied teams will qualify for the playoffs provided there wasn't a head-to-head sweep of games between the tied teams during the regular season. All playoff matches will be best two out of three games won with each game being played to 11 points.

In the event of rain, an email will be sent at least one hour before the scheduled match time for that day indicating if matches have been postponed. Team representatives are also asked to alert their respective teams. We typically will not postpone a match if it hasn't yet begun raining and there is a less than 50% chance of precipitation. If it begins raining just before or during a match, please use sound judgment and know that we can usually reschedule. Rainouts will be rescheduled as soon as possible. In some instances, we may ask the team representatives to make the call regarding a weather cancellation but would alert you ahead of time.
