The Bocce Group is inviting new participants. Bocce is a fun outdoor sport that provides exercise and fellowship with no physical strain whatsoever. If you can swing one arm and can absorb a simple introduction to the sport, you have everything you need.

In P├ętanque the objective is to score points placing boules closer to the target than the opponent after all boules have been thrown. This is achieved by a player throwing or rolling boules closer to the small target ball, officially called a jack (fr: cochonnet), or by hitting the opponents' boules away from the target while the player is standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.
