LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER for DC BOCCE SUMMER SEASON
Washington, DC – July 3, 2012 – DC Bocce League, the nation’s largest organized bocce league, is entering its summer season, bringing with it broad appeal to the urban professionals who live, work and play in the DC Metro Region. The league’s popularity with this audience is evidence of the appeal of DC Bocce’s offerings: socializing, charity and good old-fashioned backyard partying.
There is no better recreational sport for meeting people and making new connections. DC Bocce boasts nearly 10 weddings of couples who met at bocce and countless new friendships. At the end of every season, DC Bocce awards league champions donations to charity in their team’s name. The organization has donated over $85,000 to charitable organizations since 2004. Best of all, DC Bocce is host to the largest social sports party in the region. The Spring Season Charity Tournament event hosted over 500 participants, 2 pig roasts, and more than 20 kegs of beer. White Ford Bronco performed and Major League Bocce members attended the all day party at the Yards Park for free.
“DC Bocce is so much more than just a game, it is a social organization focused on connecting our members with each other and with their community,” says the League’s President, Sarah DeLucas. This season promises to be DC Bocce’s best yet with another End of Season Charity Tournament on tap for the summer. “Don’t miss out on your opportunity to make new friends, benefit a cause that is important to you and party with bocce-enthusiasts from around the region,” adds DeLucas.
Summer season is the last chance for DC residents and workers to participate in our outdoor divisions and the End of Season Charity Tournament until 2013. Registration will close Friday July 6th at midnight. Games are played at 6:30 and 7:30 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings in three Metro-accessible locations: Dupont, Columbia Heights and Capitol Hill. Teams play once a week for 6 weeks, followed by a single elimination play-off tournament. Registration is $65 for the season and includes premium beer specials, a team t-shirt, and entry to the End of Season Charity Tournament.
Founded in Washington, DC in 2004, DC Bocce League was established by a small group of friends hosting 60 participants. DC Bocce, and our sister company, Major League Bocce, now play in six cities on the east coast with over 6,000 active members playing both outdoor and indoor variations on the game.
