During the past decade while I developed as a bocce player and became an Internationally Certified Referee, I began teaching/coaching children and adults, in addition to organizing/managing both corporate events and charity fundraisers. Yes…a slight addiction. Besides Joe Bocce Events, I worked with the legendary Mario Pagnoni as a key assistant for many years, and for approximately 4 years as a volunteer I managed bocce tournaments for the Methuen Sons of Italy, a non profit organization. Since it is the only “bocciodromo” (facility) on the East Coast with official international courts, some of the events I directed were major tournaments, such as the 2016 Pan Am Games and 2015 US Nationals.
Below are some events either solely produced by Joe Bocce or that I organized as a tournament director while volunteering at the Methuen Sons of Italy.
“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 wanted 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
