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.

19th Annual Aldo Rossi Bocce Tournament
It was perfect weather for the Aldo Rossi Tournament on Sunday July 10th. $1200 in prize money was up for grabs. The tournament was sponsored by Aldo’s son, league member Nick Rossi and family AND The Nick Rossi Team. Nick was the referee for the tense and exciting final Championship Game, thrilling the spectators enjoying the match in the comfortable shade. Two of our club’s powerhouses battled it out for first, with I Prescelti narrowly edging out Stughatz.
1st Place, I Preseclti, Mario Pompei, Cody Mason, Butch Mason & Doug Burchak
2nd Place, Stughats, Ben Mitittiero, Tony Aiello, Wayne Pompei & Antonio Mitittiero
Other place winners are as follows.
3rd Place, Foster Farms from Seattle. a past winner
4th Place, Kick in the Kulo from Seattle
5th Place, Flying Pallinos with 3 Seattle Players and our own Wednesday ‘s night player, David Cross who didn’t hesitate to be a late fill in. Incidentally, he lost his glasses at the tournament, so if anyone came across a pair at the tournament, he would love to have them back.
6th Place, Auburn Bocce Club from Washington.
7th Place, Pallino or Bust
8th Place, Squandra Favale captained by Nick Rossi.
Kudos to Ball Busters, one of our Wednesday night’s teams for entering the tournament. They showed they had skills just barely missing out on a couple of victories.
A big thank you to everyone who came out early to help set up and take down. The Pompei and Mason Family members serving lunch, and to all who stayed to the end of the tournament creating a lively atmosphere for the players to play in front of. Thank you to Jakki Cotton, who kept the two days of bocce moving smoothly and quickly.

Paesano Bocce Club Singles Champions!
We have a Men’s and Women’s Single Champion and bragging rights for a full year. Under extremely hot weather (97 Degrees) that us Oregonians aren’t used to we had a “Fantastic” Singles Tournament. 16 men and 16 women faced off to see who would be crowned. The men finished in the heat with Ben Mititiero beating out Jon Epley for the championship. Rick Cervi beat out tournament director Brad Cotton that nearly collapsed after their game to get 3rd place. Unfortunately, we didn’t complete the women’s championship on Sunday. The top four women all agreed to play out the championship on Monday Morning.
And, . . . The final results for the Women’s Single Champion are in. Under much cooler weather the top four women faced off on Monday Morning. With much less weather stress Martha Bueche defeated Becky Trullinger for the Women’s Club Championship. Becky came in 2nd and Kathy Zak defeated Cathy Blazak for 3rd place.
Again, I am extremely proud of all who played under these tough conditions and especially proud of the 16 women that stepped up to let everyone know we have some pretty good women players at the Paesano Bocce Club.
Thank you to everyone that came out to play and helped.
