2022 Paesano Bocce News: 

Ciao Paesano Bocce Club Members,

I’m getting pretty excited about the upcoming 2022 bocce season. We are in the midst of getting courts 3 & 4 completed with the new surface by May and ready for our Meet and Greet Tournament. There is still a lot  to be completed. The walkways will still be under construction but the courts will be playable
Our kick off registration meeting is Tuesday March 22nd.  We will review upcoming plans, tournaments, etc. I encourage you to come. Especially team captains to sign up your team. We have a lot of interest this year so if you want a particular night I would encourage you to attend. Also, I’m hopeful we will have our individual registration form available where you can just pay online. As always if you don’t have a team and want to play let me, Brad or Rick know. We will do our best to find you a team. Note: It is very important that you communicate with Brad. He is our competition chairperson and setting up what night your teams plays, team rosters and schedules. 
Upcoming Dates: 
March 22nd, 7PMKick off registration meeting
May 8th, 10AM, (Weather Permitting) free open bocce. Invite friends, people that might be interested, or just come out and get the rust off!
May 22th, 10AM, (Weather Permitting) Meet and Greet Tournament and Festa Virtual Bocce Event. Il Sacco style. Come out for this free event. We will create teams and try to place novice players with experienced players. Free hot dog lunch provided.
June 6th, 7th & 8th, Summer Leagues Start. Games start at 6:30PM and end at 9PM. No frames start after 9PM unless games are tied.
June 29th, Paesano Bocce Club Singles Championship
July 9th, Northwest Invitational Championship. Oregon vs Washington
July 10th, 19th Annual Aldo Rossi Bocce Tournament
August 7th, 3rd Annual Gresham Ford Mixed Doubles Championship
August 21st, 29th Annual Festa Italiana Open Championship
Lastly, if there is an attorney in our Bocce family or if you know one that would work gratis. (or almost gratis) We would like to apply to the IRS as a non-profit sports club. I talked to a few bocce clubs this weekend in Las Vegas that are non profits.  This would greatly enhance our fundraising efforts getting our courts covered. 

a presto,


Update: The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night leagues are filling up fast and we are expanding to Thursday nights. Get in touch with us today! Thursday night is wide open for teams! email Mario at paesanobocceclub.com, Rick Cervi at: rchabs23@hotmail.com, or Brad Cotton at: bradbocce@comcast.net
