Let’s Play Bocce

Are you looking for that one-of-a-kind social experience people will rave about and remember for years?  If “yes,” then you probably won’t need to search any further…

Joe Bocce is the fun and unique solution to replace the same-old, standard activities that your guests are used to.  We’ll help you stick out from the crowd as an event hero by creating an exciting bocce event that they’ll crave to play again.

Although being based in South Florida (Naples and Miami), we can run your event anywhere in Florida, somewhere else in North America or even overseas.   Pick your date and location, then call us and we’ll bring all the equipment for the bocce party to you.  Yup, it’s that simple.

We can be part of your large event with one or two courts, introducing people to bocce and playing a target game like skeeball.  For example, if you are running a golf tournament, we could set up courts at the 18th green or near the club house, giving players a chance to try their hand at bocce while enjoying a drink and a cigar.  The same is true if you wanted to us to be part of the entertainment at a wine and food festival or an Italian festival.

We really shine when we are the main event and organize a tournament for you.  Teams compete vs. each other within brackets and the best teams enter the “final four” playoffs.  You can supply the prizes or we can provide medals, trophies or bocce balls to the top teams.  Unique prizes could also include Joe Bocce clothing and hats or imported Italian Bocce Shirts.

Do you want us to handle everything for the event?  We can include wine, beer or liquor tastings, cooking classes, catering, Italian singers and cigar rolling.  We can arrange for the generators, lighting and Audio/Visual needs as well.  Come up with some other ideas and we’ll gladly work them into your party.

Your bocce event can be played on a lawn in a park, on a sports field, at your hotel, residence or company.  Or it can take place in a parking lot, or even on the beach.  Do you have a party to plan on a pool deck, roof top or yacht?  No problem.  We’ll build temporary courts to accommodate you.  We also have access to world class, professional courts throughout the USA, Canada, Europe, South America and Asia.

Are you a revenue director or sales person at a hotel, bar, restaurant or country club looking to increase sales on a slow night?  Let’s set up a bocce league at your place or hold special events on a regular basis.

Do you want to build permanent courts at your club, resort or your home?  We can help with that, too.

Do you work with disabled people, disadvantaged kids, sick people or seniors?  It would be our pleasure to help brighten their day and put smiles on their faces by introducing them to bocce.  We can come to your facility.

We offer an extensive catalog of Italian Bocce Balls, Shirts and Shoes.  Examples of the balls are show in the pictures, as well as at the bottom of the page with the clothing.  We also have Measuring Devices from various manufacturers from around the world.
