The Oakmont Bocce Club plays at 9:30 AM Monday-Saturday at the West Rec. Bocce courts. Teams and courts are assigned randomly via a chip draw.
If you’re interested in playing or in learning the game, just drop by to see what “the joy of bocce” is all about. There is no cost and no need to give advance notice. All equipment is supplied and we’ll have you playing immediately.
Joining the Bocce Club is also easy. Membership forms are available in the shed at the West Rec. bocce courts and in the Bocce Club folder in the OVA office.
