What is Major League Bocce?
Welcome to Major League Bocce Bethesda, DC Bocce's newest brand! Why the change? As you've probably noticed, the name and image of DC Bocce has a few geographical restrictions, so we created Major League Bocce in order to move beyond DC and expand to new places. This season, we've moved the Bethesda division under the Major League Bocce brand. But don't let the new name and logo chase you away - Major League Bocce promises to provide the same amazing bocce experience that you've come to expect from playing with DC Bocce. Same balls, same beers, and same bar - just with a brand-spanking-new logo.
On Your Mark... Get Set... DRINK!
Thanks to our beer sponsors, Peroni and Blue Moon, we have a whole other competition that goes down every season- the Peroni Ticket Contest! For every pitcher of Blue Moon or Peroni that your team purchases, the bartender will give you a ticket. At the end of the season, DC Bocce/Major League Bocce will count up the number of tickets for every team and the top four teams will win a VIP Limo Bus Winery Excursion! This trip includes round-trip transportation to Virginia’s wine country for a day of tastings and lunch. Bottoms up!
Bocce is a great recreational and social sport. It is game that is easily enjoyed by people of all ages, genders, and experience levels. Whether you are a bocce rookie or an experienced veteran, you will find that our league games are always competitive and fun. And after our games, we head to our local sponsor bar, Caddies on Cordell, for discounts on Blue Moon, Peroni, and food!
What do we play for?
Why would you sign up to play in a bocce league? Well, for one, there's the social aspect---meeting people who like to have as much fun as you do. Second, there's the drinking which is mucho important. Third, we can't forget flip cup and beer pong! But what are we all really playing for? Answer: a first place trophy and a $250 donation to the charity of your choosing! Oh, and bragging rights, of course.
Our Amazing Sponsor Bar
We're very excited to be returning to Caddies on Cordell, who has been our sponsor bar for the past several seasons. They have graciously welcomed us back again with great beer discounts and delicious food specials just for Major League Bocce players. We will head to Caddies after every game to have a few beers, socialize (hey, it IS a social sport), chow down, and maybe play a game of flip cup or beer pong before the night's over. Why would you want to be anywhere else? Answer: You wouldn't.
