If you’re like most people tasked with organizing a corporate, personal or fundraising event, I bet you’ve been searching for that one-of-a-kind, social experience that your guests will rave about, right? You know…that legendary party that families and co-workers will tell stories about for years to come. Now of course you’re creative, or you would not be planning events, but sometimes it can be challenging for even the best of us to come up with new ideas, don’t you agree?
“Yes! Tell me more,” I can hear you say…
Well, how about a JOE “BOCCE” Tournament?
Joe Bocce can be your fun and unique solution to replace the same-old activities that your guests are getting bored with. Together we’ll create an exciting bocce event, really an experience…that they’ll definitely crave to play in again. And who knows, maybe this will turn into an annual event and you’re elevate to Event Super Hero status!
Bocce? Yes, absolutely bocce! It’s no longer just a game old Italian guys play while they sip homemade wine, smoke cigars and argue with each other. That still happens, but bocce is now a hip and classic game at the same time. It’s a highly interactive and all-inclusive sport/activity, and it’s perfect for many events because young, old and even people with disabilities can play side by side. The best part of hosting a bocce outing is that unlike golf, your guests don’t need to have any experience playing. After only a five minute demonstration, their competitive juices will be flowing while rolling balls, laughing and making memories, and that’s ultimate goal, isn’t it?
Where’s your next fun-filled event going to be?
We can seamlessly run your event in South Florida because we are based in Naples & Miami. We can also successfully manage events with you anywhere in Florida, in North America or even overseas by utilizing our portable courts and worldwide network of bocce facilities. Pick your date, call us to work out the details, then we’ll bring all the equipment for the bocce party to you. Yup, it’s that simple.
“I hired Joe to set up portable bocce courts and provide instruction at the company’s summer social. It was a HUGE success. In fact, the gathering went way longer than planned because the golfers want to play bocce after golfing. Joe is a fantastic organizer and the employees requested we do it at all our socials.” – Brad Smith, Owner of Audio Video Design

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.
Where To Play:
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.
