Afferra Le Palle, e Tempo Di Bocce!!

I recently went to a neighbor's birthday/ Bocce party. Being Italian, I knew how fun Bocce was. In the past, I had played the Italian sport. Join in on the fun and learn more, grab your balls, it's Bocce time!Bocce is a classic Italian sport that was first played in Ancient Rome. A Bocce set includes nine balls: four green bocces (balls), four red bocces and the white pallino (jack).The object of the game is to get your team's color bocce closest to the small pallino. Teams take turns throwing their bocces. Bocces are usually thrown in an underarm throw used to knock the other team's bocces away from the pallino. A Bocce game typically lasts from seven to thirteen points.
