How to play

A game can be conducted between two players, or two teams of two, three, or four. Court size can vary depending on your size of backyard/court. The traditional size of a bocce court is 27.5 metres length & 2.5 – 4 metres wide. Scoring Bocce is calculated by the team receiving 1 point for each of their balls that are 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 favourable position. Tactics can get quite complex when players have sufficient control over the ball to throw or roll it accurately.
