Get Ready for Bocce Ball Tournament at Rosemary Beach – Oct 7

Rosemary Beach Foundation presents the 2018 Fall Bocce Ball Tournament on October 7, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. The tournament will get rolling at the East Long Green Park.

Bocce rules are simple: there are two teams, and the match begins with a member of one team throwing a small ball, called the pallino from one end of the court to another. Then, the teams switch off throwing larger balls, called the bocce, at the pallino. When all balls have been played, one team is awarded one point for each bocce ball closer to the pallino than the closest ball of the opposing team.

Whether you are a player or a spectator, join in for a day of friendly competition, food, drinks and fun.
