Bocce is an Italian game. The basic principle of the sport is to roll a bocce ball closest to the target ball, which is called a palina. Bocce as a Special Olympics sport provides people with special needs the opportunity to have social contact, develop physically, and to gain self-confidence. Next to soccer and golf, bocce is the third most participated sport in the world.
Special Olympics Pennsylvania – Philadelphia currently offers Doubles and Unified Doubles.
Virtual Bocce practice is on Sundays from 11:00 am — 12:00 pm.
If you would like to get involved with Bocce, please contact Michelle Cordell.
