Bocce. Like Curling on dirt (but even more fun).
Bocce. A little like cornhole but with more class and challenge.

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.
