Hi! What's the status of 2021 leagues?
For those that play in the SE league at Garfield Park or at the American Legion. Our favorite bartender, Lewis, has recently had surgery and is in need of some care this Holiday Season. A go fund me page has been set up for donations. I know times are tough, but if you can give I know it would be greatly appreciated.

Leagues are a hot ticket in Washington D.C. The DC Bocce League quickly gained popularity and grew from 50 players its first season to the approximately 4,000 players today! It has expanded outside of D.C. as well under the brand Major League Bocce to 11 cities across the country. The league hosts four seasons a year. Players get an 8-week bocce season and can register for multiple seasons. Games last between 45 minutes to an hour. At the end of the season, the league seeds teams based on their win/loss record. Get on out there and join a league!
If anyone would like to try a mobile game:) https://www.facebook.com/3D-Bocce-Ball-360988977730114/
Do we have any weather updates for the Alexandria division?
Question - When just using a park/playground that doesn't have an actual bocce court, what dimensions do you guys use when setting up the cones? (Such as Battery Ln Park in Bethesda, for example)
Any idea if Florence/current rain will ruin our championship playoffs tomorrow?

You've got questions, we've got answers! Updates just went out via email re: winter & spring leagues. The big takeaway: GAMES WILL BE PLAYED! 👍 Read all about it here: https://conta.cc/2xSNTQ6

Thank you for your continued support, patience & flexibility. We promise to deliver on our upcoming spring season & get you all 6 regular season games plus playoffs once it's deemed safe to do so. Please continue to stay safe & healthy. Wishing you the best during these difficult times & looking forward to rolling with you soon!


The CDC is currently mulling whether or not to issue guidelines that the general public wear masks. While masks won't necessarily protect you, it will protect others from being infected by you, should you be asymptomatic. Here's an easy way to create a mask using a bandanna & 2 rubber bands - you could probably also use one of your old bocce t-shirts too! 😃


We miss you! Join us Tuesday 3/31 at 6:30 p.m. EDT for the first ever DC Bocce League Virtual Happy Hour. https://zoom.us/j/420692315

Flattening the Curve: Winter Leagues Postponed

We're doing our part to flatten the curve. Winter leagues are postponed til further notice! That includes all league nights, tournaments & parties. https://conta.cc/2Qmz3HN

The DC Bocce League will be practicing social distancing for the next few weeks. Washington, DC has already started to close bars, restaurants and parks due to the spread of the coronavirus. Not only is social distancing a best practice, it is the only option available to most of us as daily life begins to shut down across the region.

The CDC has recommended all gatherings with 50+ people be postponed for 8 weeks. We are hoping that these guidelines will improve once our communities get a handle on the spread of the virus. We will have another update to you on the status of our winter season the week of 4/6.

Looking ahead, we are still anticipating to run bocce this spring. The start of the season will most likely be pushed back in accordance with local & federal guidelines around events & gatherings. While we don't have all the answers regarding our spring program today, we are planning to proceed with the season once it is deemed safe to do so.

This is certainly the biggest challenge the DC Bocce League has ever had to face since we began operating in 2004. Truth be told, if the pandemic gets out of hand, it could drive us out of business altogether. Countless small businesses, independent contractors, and tipped & hourly wage workers across this country are struggling with the same fears. To anyone who is struggling, please know you are not alone! We are all in this together, come hell or high water. Don't hesitate to ask for help from a friend, family member, or even your friendly neighborhood bocce league :)

We urge you to continue to follow all guidelines posted by state & federal officials. Wash your hands & maintain a safe distance at all times. And if you're in a position to provide help to those in need, consider donating to your local food bank, homeless shelter, or give blood.
