Stop by the bocce court at Grant’s Block in front of the movie screen this Wednesday for the start of the bocce season. The Providence Bocce Club has expanded to 16 competing teams and their schedule is already set. But spectators are welcome and perhaps you will be inspired to get on board for the next year. You never know, someone may pull a hamstring.
Team names tend towards the ballsy — Castration Station, Sandy Balls — and clever bocce-ups like Chewbocce and Mission Imbocceball. The vibe is relaxed but competition fierce.
The season runs through the play-offs and championship in September, with teams meeting Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
5:30pm, Wednesday, May 1, the Rolling Stones vs. Bocce Ya Self, Westminster at Union Street (directions)
