About Major League Bocce
|What is Major League Bocce?
|Major League Bocce first started out as the DC Bocce League, founded in 2004 by a close-knit group of friends all living in Washington, DC. After a couple of seasons of playing other social sports, the founders of Major League Bocce looked for a way to provide an alternative experience that was more in tune with their lifestyle. Bocce was the obvious choice as athletic coordination was hardly a prerequisite for play. More importantly, bocce created a space for players―often with a drink in hand―to engage in friendly, casual competition. The League instantly attracted an assorted group of people in their 20s and 30s looking for an excuse to share a new meet-up experience.
Today, Major League Bocce hosts leagues in 10 cities across the US. We hope to continue to grow and spread the love of bocce to people everywhere. To everyone who is a fan of the game, thank you!
Bocce is attractive to all types of people because it's so darn versatile you can play on grass in the middle of a city park, or you can roll right next to the ocean on a sandy beach. The sport is both casual to play and competitive in strategy. Men and women are on equal footing in this sport, and age is never an issue (as long as you're over 21!).
Since the league was founded in 2004, Major League Bocce has donated a percentage of our registration fees to local and national charity organizations. Charity is an integral part of the programming of Major League Bocce competition. In each season all teams compete to win their division and the opportunity to choose a charity to receive a donation in honor of their team. To date, Major League Bocce has donated over $150,000 to hundreds of charities on behalf of our championship teams.
