Standard bocce sets contain 8 colored balls 4 balls each to a color, typically green and red and one smaller ball, called the jack or pallino.
Different skill levels are often associated with different sizes of bocce balls. Smaller balls tend to be used by beginners and kids, while the larger ones are used by professionals. Regulation-sized bocce balls have a standard diameter of 107 mm (4.2 inches) and a standard weight of 920 g (2 lbs).
Standard bocce sets will run you at least $20, but if youre going to buy a professional set, you could need more than $100.
15. Choose your teams
Bocce ball can be played by two single players pitted against one another, or by two teams with two, three, or four players each. Teams of 5 or more are not advisable, as fewer balls than players means that not everyone will get a chance to bowl.
16. known as the court
If you dont have a bocce court, you can always play in open space, although a defined court is preferred. A regulation court is a maximum 4m (13 feet) wide and a maximum 27.5m (90 feet) long, although any rectangular court measuring about 13x90 should do. Regulation bocce courts have a raised barrier around the edge of the rectangle. In most cases, this raised barrier measures a maximum of 20 cm (8 in) high.
Mark a foul line, if not already given, beyond which players cannot step as they bowl a bocce ball.
Some players prefer to pound a regulator peg in the exact center of the court. This is the point beyond which the jack or pallino must pass when it is thrown out at the beginning of the game. This is one variation of how many people play bocce, although it is not standard.
17. Throw out the jack
The team that won the coin toss or was randomly selected to start gets two opportunities to throw the jack into a zone 5 m (~16 feet), which ends 2.5 m (~8 feet) from the endboard of the court. If the team that first throws the jack fails to get the jack into the prescribed zone, the second team gets to throw out the jack.An alternate set of rules says that the jack need only travel past a regulator pin that marks the middle of court.If youre not playing bocce on a court, feel free to throw the jack wherever, provided that its far enough away from players so that gameplay doesnt become too easy.
18. After the jack is successfully thrown
The team that threw out the jack is responsible for throwing out the first bocce ball. The aim is to get the bocce ball as close to the jack as possible. Players who throw out the bocce ball must stand behind the fault line, which is approximately 10 feet (3.0 m) above the bottom of the baseboard.
There are several ways to throw a bocce ball. Most tend to throw the bocce underhanded, with their palm cupping the underside of the ball, and either lobbing the ball higher into the air or bowling the ball from closer to the ground. Some, however, choose to throw the ball cupping it from the top instead of from the bottom, and lobbing it the same way they would have an underhand throw.
19. Score one point
Depending on the rules you choose to use, bocce balls that are touching or kissing the jack at the end of play count as two points instead of one.If the two teams balls are equal distance away from the jack, no points are awarded and another frame is played.
20. Bocce Ball Scoring
When all balls have been thrown, the teams shall proceed to measure the distance of the balls from the Jack. Each teams ball that is closer to the target ball than the nearest ball of the opposing team, scores 1 point. Games are played to a set point total usually 12, 15 or 21.
