Even if you’re not the most athletic person, you can find fun with Bocce. It’s an easy game to pick up, but it requires great skill to master it. But there’s no need to be intimidated if you’re asked to join a game of bocce. Play starts with a pallino (small ball) being thrown onto the court. Then teams alternate throwing a bocce ball as close to the pallino as possible. The official rules get quite a bit more complicated, but it’s a friendly game, so just follow your teammate’s lead until you get the hang of it.

What is Bocce?
There are plenty of videos about rules, but this short 1 minute clip sums it up.
Who Are We?
Located in Gresham, Oregon members of Club Paesano have been playing bocce at Cedarville Park since 1976. Under the shade of tall fir trees two initial courts were built with four more added by 2006. With courts came tournaments and with tournaments came leagues. Click to read more about Paesano Bocce Club’s history.
As always, Members are welcome to come out and play anytime. I recommend bringing a blower with you as the courts will not be maintained on a regular basis. Also, over the winter we will continue to try and make improvements to the court and walkways. We may be looking for volunteers to help out.
Before you know it, we will be getting ready for our summer leagues. Now is the time for team Capos to get your teams together. Talk amongst yourselves to recruit the players you want. Unaffiliated players don’t be bashful to ask team Capo’s to join their team.
Again, We had a fantastic year! Our club has grown to 165 members and I especially loved the fall format. It was a great way to meet and play with other players from other nights. If I look at the number of hits on our last week of shooting compared to the first week you can see a monstrous improvement! Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for improvements for 2023. Morning or afternoon leagues are still an option. (if we could get 20 or more players or enough for 6 to 8 teams)
Lastly, thank you to everyone that helped out this year! We are a Bocce Club with no paid employees. All the improvements that have been accomplished this year has been done with the volunteer work of its members! Remember, last spring we didn’t even have courts 3 & 4 and no paver walkways!
I look forward to 2023!
See you on the courts.
