A New Game in Town

It’s not really a new game in town, but a resurgence of an old game. It’s called, Bocce. It is said to have been brought into our area by Italian immigrants who came here seeking a new life in search of work in the mines and a place to raise their families. They had played it in their home country on grassy fields or dirt roads. They shaped the balls from wood or rock, the rock weighing about 4 lbs. They were to be thrown at a smaller ball as a target called a Pollino that was thrown out first. The closest ball or balls were awarded points. This method of play has been transformed into being played on clay courts lined with stout timbers to help contain the heavier balls. Teams were formed for competition and standard rules were agreed to.
