Autumn Senior league

P A L I S A D E S  B O C C E  C L U B

Autumn Senior League starts Tuesday, August 24th!

“Bocce Brunch Bunch”

You’d be joining a group of the happiest, greatest, friendliest seniors in the world.

The Summer Senior League was a runaway smash hit. 

85 Palisadian seniors on 8 teams — enjoying the new friendships, the fun ‘after-party’ picnic lunches — and the bocce.

Just ask any of them.

We’re starting things up again for the Autumn Senior League. 

Players can be on the same teams, create new teams, or join the league for the first time.

Matches are each Tuesday at 11 AM or noon.  If you miss a few weeks, it’s all good.  A team just needs 4 players each week.

Right after you play, there’s a picnic party (with fantastic boxed picnic lunches catered by Palisades Garden Cafe).  So fun.

No previous bocce experience necessary.  You can learn as you go.  You’ll be a star in no time.  Snappy awards for the winning teams.  Lots of other charming little extras along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many players should be on a team?

8-10.  This way, you’re likely to have 6 always coming to a given league match.

In a match, anywhere from 4 players to 8 players can play in a given match (maximum of 4 on each side of the court.)

You have to have 4 players for any match.

What happens if I miss a match?

It’s okay.  With 8-10 on a team, you can play as often as you’d like.  (There is no refund if you miss any matches.)

When is the registration period over?

You can register any time from now until 1/2 way during the season…

Do I need to order picnic lunches from Palisades Garden Cafe?

No you don’t.  We’re only offering it as a convenience; it’s up to you.  If you choose to do it, you’ll be paying them directly.  (You can sign up on this page by clicking the link on the story about the Palisades Garden Cafe.)

What happens if it rains?

If a match is canceled, there will be a ‘make up’ date set.

How many bocce seasons will there be in a year?

Two this year; Summer and Fall.

Starting next year, probably Spring, Summer and Fall!

What do I bring and wear?
Comfortable clothes.  It’s all good.  Sneakers are best.  For the ladies, you don’t want heels…

I’ll bet the ranch some teams will have uniforms!

The main thing to bring is a happy attitude!  You’re going to have so much fun…

What is the match format?

Each match will be ‘2 out of 3’ games.  Tie-breaker if you’re tied one game a piece.  Games are to 6 points.  Tie-breaker game is to 5 points.

You must have at least 4 players for a match.  2 play on each side.  If you have more players than that, they can split up on each side of the court.

If your team isn’t on the court ready to play by 10 minutes after the start time, you forfeit one game.  After 20 minutes, you forfeit the match.

You can play with balls that we will provide, or balls that you bring.
