How to Play Bocce Ball
Bocce is a sport with a history that traces back to ancient games played during the Roman Empire. Developed into its present form in Italy, Bocce is traditionally played on natural soil and asphalt courts 90 feet in length and 8 to 13 feet wide.
A game can be played between two players, or two teams of two, three, or four. A match is started by a randomly chosen side given the opportunity to throw a smaller ball, the jack (called a boccino or pallino in some areas of Italy), from one end of the court into a zone that is 16 ft in length, ending 8 ft from the far end of the court. If the first team misses twice, the other team is awarded the opportunity to place the jack anywhere they choose within the prescribed zone.
The side that first attempted to place the jack is given the opportunity to bowl first. Once the first bowl has taken place, the other side has the opportunity to bowl. From then on, the side which does not have the ball closest to the jack has a chance to bowl, up until one side or the other has used their four balls. At that point, the other side bowls its remaining balls.
The team with the closest ball to the jack is the only team that can score points in any frame. The scoring team receives one point for each of their balls that is closer to the jack than the closest ball of the other team. The length of a game varies by region but is typically from 7 to 13 points.
Players are permitted to throw the ball in the air using an underarm action. This is generally used to knock either the jack or another ball away to attain a more favorable position. Tactics can get quite complex when players have sufficient control over the ball to throw or roll it accurately.
