Wuz Up? Bocce!

Bernie Theobald
Communications Director

As part of its fun and friendly focus, the Lake Wildwood Bocce Club hosts a mixed monthly tournament on the second Saturday. “Not especially competitive,” yet “still somewhat enthusiastic,” the tournament is typically a single elimination event.

Four-person teams play for the fun of it, with modest prizes for the winning team in the field.

There are sometimes four to eight teams in each tournament, depending on who signs up. The team members are different every month, being selected by the Club’s tournament director, which helps insure a fair, casual and enjoyable game experience.

In addition, some players usually bring along breakfast pastries (often homemade!), fresh fruits and tasty “bubbly” and juices to satisfy one’s hungry or thirsty appetite during/after the games. Sooooo delicious!
