Bocce is an easy game for everyone. Played on carpeted courts which are well shaded at each end. Free lessons and all equipment is furnished. Nothing to buy. Appropriate, modest attire must be worn. Open to all RCSC Cardholder and their escorted guests. All courts are wheel chair accessible. Call the phone numbers below and we will make special arrangements to meet with you and teach you the game of bocce. Or, stop by the clubhouse for details. This is truly a fun club to check out.
The game is played by first rolling a small ball, called pallino, down the court. Each player then rolls their bocce balls, trying to get as close to the pallino as possible. Points are scored based on the closest color ball to the pallino. Members of the Bocce Club also participate in the Senior Olympics, Tri-Cities Tournament and various games with Bocce clubs around the area. Open houses are held each year where we welcome newcomers.
