Once we know all the teams and players that will be playing — we’ll get a schedule out to all players.
The sun is setting on a warm summer night. You’re looking at the mountains to the north — and the chill of ocean air drifts by.
You’re with incredible Palisadians — from 25 to 70 and every age in between.
It’s a party on the best bocce courts in Southern California.
After bocce, you scoot up to Hanks, or Casa Nostra, or somewhere else to celebrate with your fantastic team.
That’s what’s happening every single Tuesday and Thursday nights at in the Sunset League — and it’s been a runaway hit!
There have been 865 Palisadians playing in leagues in the past year!
Teams from neighborhoods. From the schools in town. From the churches and synagogues. From town organizations and businesses. Palisadians that just signed up and we put on a team.
Here’s what’s amazing. Many of teams started as a group of complete strangers. Now they’re cheering for each other, and going out to eat & drink together after the matches as pals.
No previous bocce experience necessary. You can learn as you go. You’ll be a star in no time. Snappy awards for the winning teams. Lots of other charming little extras along the way.
Palisades Bocce League. Celebrating the best of what it means to be a Palisadian.
