Bocce is one of the oldest games in the world, and one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. Bocce is fun, easy to learn, and inexpensive to play. It is a game for people of all ages, and of all abilities. It can be both social and competitive. As one bocce wag put it, "bocce takes minutes to learn, and a lifetime to perfect." Try it once, and we are sure you will become hooked on bocce.
Inspired by the growing popularity of bocce in Humboldt County, the Six Rivers Bocce Club is now being formed. Bocce enthusiasts on California's north coast are formalizing their love of bocce in order to:
- Promote the game of Bocce within the community, organize tournaments and league play, and allocate the resources of the Six Rivers Bocce Club for the benefit of its members and the community.
- Educate youth, seniors and others about Bocce, its history and culture.
- Raise funds for courts and park improvements, in support of local community groups, and for other Club purposes
- Assist with the day to day grooming and minor maintenance of Bocce courts in Humboldt County, and to be a Bocce advocate and consultant to local cities and community service districts.
Help is needed during this formative stage to ensure an organization that best meets the needs of its members and the local bocce community. If you would like to be involved in the development of the club, or to provide input to the club's organizers, please contact us.
