The Super Bowl is today and people should be out tailgating in full force. What is better than playing tailgate games while waiting for the grill to heat up and filling up those little square in your Super Bowl pool. What games should you be playing today? How about some bocce ball. Not sure what size bocce set to use? Check out this sizing chart which should help out in your bocce decision making.
The size of a bocce ball is measured in millimeters (mm) and across the diameter. They come in all sorts of sizes but the most common are 73mm, 90mm, 100mm, and 107mm. The professionals use 107mm but those are pretty bulky so most backyard players just stick with a 100mm high quality resin bocce ball.
What are these bocce ball things made of?
The standard material of a bocce ball is a poly-resin composite. Have you ever been bowling — its just like that bowling ball you sling down the lane. There are also steel bocce balls that are better known as petanque, and plastic sets that are great for kids or for the beach. Have you tried beach bocce? It rules.
BOCCE BALL LEAGUES:
Bocce leagues are also springing up all over the place. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Denver are just a few of the cities that offer great bocce leagues. The Day of Games has the DogDaze leagues which feature bocce games. Its a great way to meet other people in the area and a great excuse to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.
