Spring Registration is Now Open!
Don't let the snow covered parks fool you, springtime is on its way to Boston. We're ready to get back outside after this ridiculous winter and play some bocce. We'll be back at all our favorite spots from last year, plus we're adding a brand new league in Somerville. Registration is now open - see the registration page for more details and check out the spring line-up here:
Don't like venturing too far from the bar? We've got you covered with bocce right on the patio of Atlantic Beer Garden in the Seaport. Enjoy playing outdoors knowing that the comforts of the bar are just a few steps away. Games start at 7pm and continue throughout the night. The season kicks off Tuesday April 28th.
+Downtown Boston Wednesdays
Our most popular division returns to the Common. No need to be afraid of the dark when you're tossing glo bocce balls. We roll downtown on Wednesdays starting at 7pm and then head to Sidebar for post-game festivities. Games begin April 29th.
Cambridge Bocce returns to Wednesdays nights this spring at Pacific Street Park. The balls get rolling at 7pm and then we'll stroll down to a nearby bar for an after party. Games begin April 29th.
+Kenmore Square Thursdays
You can't get a prettier setting for a bocce match than right along the banks of the Charles River on The Esplanade. Just a short walk from Kenmore Square, roll on Thursdays and get your weekend started early. Games begin April 30th and kick off at 7pm.
+Somerville Thursdays (NEW Location!)
Check out the newest bocce digs north of the river in Somerville. Games will be played on Thursday nights at Boathouse Park along the Mystic River. Afterwards we'll head to Somerville's hip new entertainment area Assembly Row. Plus the Assembly Orange Line station is just steps away. The season will kick off on April 30th.
Winter Season Rolls On!
The winter season is rolling along in Downtown Boston at The Point & in Somerville at Aeronaut Brewing Co. We'll be crowning our winter citywide champ during the End of Season Party on Tuesday March 24th at The Point. Complimentary food and drinks for registered winter season players. Be there!
