The Summer and Autumn Senior Leagues last year were a runaway smash hit.

185 Palisadian seniors on 16 teams — enjoying the new friendships, the fun ‘after-party’ picnic lunches — and the bocce.

Just ask any of them.

We’re starting things up again for the Spring Senior League.

Players can be on the same teams, create new teams, or join the league for the first time.

Matches are each Tuesday at 11 AM or noon.  If you miss a few weeks, it’s all good.  A team just needs 4 players each week.

Right after you play, there’s a picnic party.  So fun.

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. 

 

Dates

Match play dates will be each Tuesday, starting on March 1, and likely going for 8 weeks through Mid-May.

Playoffs will likely follow in the last weeks of May for two weeks.

We’ll have an Awards Party following the Playoff Championships to celebrate all the amazing players in our fabulous league! 

. . . . 

Dates may change (or be added) due to weather and other circumstances.

All the teams that all have a picnic together after their matches have so much fun! 

You can bring lunches from home — or you can order and pick up from all the great restaurants in town.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many players should be on a team?

8-12.  This way, you’re likely to have 6 always coming to a given league match.

In a match, anywhere from 4 players to 8 players can play in a given match (maximum of 4 on each side of the court.)

You have to have 4 players for any match.

What happens if I miss a match?

It’s okay.  With 8-10 on a team, you can play as often as you’d like.  

When is the registration period over?

It’s likely you can get on a team even after the season starts.

But if you want to start a team, you need to register at least a few weeks before the start of the season.

What happens if it rains?

If a match is canceled, there will be a ‘make up’ date set.

How many bocce seasons will there be in a year?

Most likely three this year; Spring, Summer and Fall.

 

What do I bring and wear?
Comfortable clothes.  It’s all good.  Sneakers are best.  For the ladies, you don’t want heels…

I’ll bet the ranch some teams will have uniforms!

The main thing to bring is a happy attitude!  You’re going to have so much fun…

What is the match format?

Each match will be ‘2 out of 3’ games.  Tie-breaker if you’re tied one game a piece.  Games are to 6 points.  Tie-breaker game is to 5 points.

You must have at least 4 players for a match.  2 play on each side.  If you have more players than that, they can split up on each side of the court.

If your team isn’t on the court ready to play by 10 minutes after the start time, you forfeit one game.  After 20 minutes, you forfeit the match.

You can play with balls that we will provide, or balls that you bring.
