Bocce seasonal play will begin in Baker Park on June 6th @ 6 PM.
Plan to play every Sunday at 6:00, weather permitting! We will be playing on the grass with rope courts and the following Covid precautions: Play at your own risk. Masks are optional, but it would be appreciated if anyone not fully vaccinated would wear one out of respect for others. The courts will be separated to allow for recommended social distancing. Four people will play on a court, with one person designated to measure and keep score. Each player will use the same two balls. We will have tape and markers to mark the balls and some hand sanitizer for cleaning - please feel free to bring your own. Please remove tape and clean balls when finished, and spray down measuring tape and abacus. Please call Terri @ 301-508-0283 with any questions.
