Bocce. Like Curling on dirt (but even more fun).
Bocce. A little like cornhole but with more class and challenge.
Bocce. Can be played with a glass of Italian Red in one hand.
Bocce, Patanque/Boules, Lawn Bowling - are variations of an ancient form of recreation picked up by Roman soldiers somewhere in the Empire. Bocce is the Italian version, and can be played on grass, dirt, beach, or bocce court.
Formed in 2003, the purpose of the Club is to encourage the development and playing of Bocce in the Chattanooga area. We have regular play, monthly tournaments, and an annual Calvanese SinglesTournament.

The Club is involved in building several courts as of July, 2018. In fact, playable at some point in August 2018, there will be two 70 x 11 ft. bocce courts that we are partnering with management of the Chattanooga Choo Choo to build and use in their rose garden/fish pond area. These will be open to the public. Come on down! Meanwhile, there is a court in our "Clubhouse" at 1811 Dodds Ave. A public court is present in Heritage Park. There is a Boules Court at Fiamma Pizza. One member has a private court. Other are planned.
Our Annual Membership Meeting will be on Sunday, August 5th, at 19:00 (yes we are clock Euro/military/medical!) at the Bocce Clubhouse, behind 1811 Dodds Ave.
August 25th, the Chattanooga Choo Choo will be holding a Beer Festival. The bocce courts will be up and running! Be there, or even volunteer to promote bocce through the Club. Call Frank.
