Is this a search for an awesome San Diego Bocce Ball League? Lucky you. I have the answer. Google brought you here. Congrats. If you want to play bocce with other your people in a rec league setting — you should join the DogDaze Leisure Sports League. This rec league is for 20 and 30 Somethings and is currently in its 2nd year. Last year the bocce games were played in Pacific Beach on the sands on Law Street – overlooking the pacific ocean and the sunset… but this year the venue will likely be moving to Kate O Sessions. Although there will be no beach bocce sunset play, there is now the fun of playing bocce on grass. So the DogDaze leagues aren;t exactly just a bocce league, they include Bocce, Horseshoes, Cornhole, Ladder Toss, and a bunch of games that generally involve throwing things at other things. This is truly the best setting to relax after work. This is an alternative to the VAVI Sports League that you were in last year. Its not competitive kickball. Its just a bunch of people, hanging out, having a good time, and then all going out to a bar together. Happy hours in San Diego are always a good time.
This sound good to you? Check out – Dogdaze Leisure Sports Leagues.
If you enjoy OTL in San Diego then you are the kind of person who will enjoy the SD bocce league. Meet new people in town, make new friends, have fun with your current group of buddies. The Dogdaze games are so simple – EVERYONE CAN PLAY THEM.
This is also a pretty cheap rec league in San Diego. For under $50 bucks you get to leave the house and enjoy your time after work!
Want to join a Los Angeles Bocce Ball League? What you should probably do is check out the Dogdaze Leisure Sports Leagues. The league in Los Angeles has been around for a couple years and they play on the sand overlooking the Pacific Ocean. How could this not be fun? The league isn’t like other bocce leagues where you play the same game over and over again. The Dogdaze league includes many other tailgate sports so you don’t get bored playing bocce. Each week you get to play a new game that involves throwing something at something else. This is the Los Angeles Rec League that you have been searching for. The league takes place in Marina del Rey which is next to Venice Beach, close to Santa Monica, and nowhere near Hollywood. Joining is easy. Just go to Dogdaze Leisure Sports Leagues.
The best part about joining a bocce team is that the game is so easy. How tough could it be to throw a big rock at another little rock. Playing bocce on the beach makes it even easier. There is no rolling which is what makes playing bocce on the grass so difficult. Bocce is actually a super popular game among those who frequent the beach a lot and enjoy playing beach sports. This LA Bocce League is great to meet new people in the area, or just go relax with your buddies. What could be a better thing to do in LA than go to the beach and watch the sunset.
So check out the Dogdaze Leisure Sports Leagues. Bocce is one of the featured sports!
INCLUDED IN YOUR CROQUET SET –
6 – Croquet Balls (6 colors)
6 – Mallets
9 – Wickets
2 – Can Coolers (koozie’s)
1 – Bottle Opener
Smack your croquet ball under the wickets in order and into the posts. Least amount of strokes possible.
AREA OF PLAY –
Croquet can be played anywhere – Park, Backyard, Alleyway; pretty much any open area. It is not recommended that you use this set indoors, but feel free to play wherever you like. Just stick to the “Basics” and only hit your croquet balls under the wickets and at the stakes. Do not swing the mallets at anything else or throw the balls at anything else. Beware of others while playing.
The standard 9-wicket croquet layout is pictured to the right. However, you can place the 9 inner wickets in any locations you like. Boundaries need to be established, out of bounds balls go back on the boundary.
CROQUET RULES PER THE DAY OF GAMES –
There are various ways to play Croquet and many ways to keep score. This is the Day of Games way. The rules below describe games played one team vs. another team (or 1 person vs. 1 person, up 6 people (or teams) playing at once).
a) Determine who goes first, second, third, etc.
b) Player 1places first ball in between first stake and first wicket, then begins the game. Each player will start exactly the same way by placing the ball in between first stake and wicket and striking with mallet.
c) If the ball passes through both wickets, the player receives two bonus strokes. Generally, bonus strokes do not accumulate – only the last bonus strokes earned are allowed (the exception being the two wickets at the starting or turning stakes). Bonus strokes are awarded for going under a wicket, for striking a stake, or for hitting another ball (this is called roqueting and you get 2 extra strokes).
d) Roqueting – If a player roquets there are four options.
1) Take 2 bonus strokes from where the players ball lands.
2) Place the players ball a single mallet head’s length away from the ball hit and take 2 strokes.
3) Place ball next to the ball hit. Then hit own ball so that it moves both balls. Then take another shot.
4) Place own ball side by side with the struck ball. Then placing foot on own ball strike it so as to move the other ball without moving own. Then take another shot.
e) A player can only roquet once per turn unless the player goes through a wicket or hits the turning stake.
f) If another moves another player’s ball through a wicket or causes it to hit a stake, the wicket or stake is scored, but no bonus strokes are awarded.
First team to go through all wickets and hit the final stake – wins!
INCLUDED IN BOCCE SETS –
8 – Bocce balls (2 different designs)
1 – Pallino (jack)
2 – Can Coolers (koozie’s)
1 – Bottle Opener / Tape Measure
AREA OF PLAY –
Bocce can be played anywhere – Beach, Park, Backyard, Alleyway; pretty much any open area. It is not recommended that you use this set indoors, but feel free to play wherever you like. Just stick to the “Basics” and only throw Bocce Balls at the Pallino. Do not throw bocce balls at anything else.
COURT SIZE (optional) –
Most people just play Bocce in any open area. The Pallino is tossed and then the Bocce balls follow. If you are interested in building your own official backyard Bocce course, then the dimensions are as follows:
13 foot box, then a 65 foot rectangle, then another 13 foot box.
There are boundary walls typically created around the entire court.
BOCCE BALL RULES PER THE DAY OF GAMES –
There are various ways to play Bocce and many ways to keep score. This is the Day of Games way. Bocce can be played 1vs.1, 2vs.2, 3vs.3, 4vs.4 or even 5+vs.5+ (if you have enough bocce balls). The rules below describe games played one team vs. another team. This can be 1vs.1, 2vs.2, or 4vs.4. If you would like to play Bocce Ball with more than 2 teams the rules are very similar but each person gets their own balls to play with rather than partnering up with a teammate. The rest of the rules are the same with regard to scoring, order, and how to play bocce.
Playing in an open area:
1) Decide which team will toss first.
2) This team will create a line in the playing field and this will act as the foul line. Nobody is allowed to walk past this line until all the Bocce balls are thrown. If someone crosses the foul line this will result in a negative point! (optional rule)
3) Team drawing the line will toss the Pallino into the field of play
4) This same team will act first and throw a Bocce ball at the Pallino. Teams then alternate throws.
5) Once all the Bocce balls have been thrown the scoring of this round takes place. Only one team is allowed to score in each round. A point is awarded for each ball that is closer to the Pallino than the closest ball of the opponents.
6) Optional Rule – Award 2 points to any ball that is touching the Pallino.
7) The game can be played to 11, 21, or any number you come up with. Win by 2 points.
Playing in a court with boundary walls: Same rules apply as above with these additions -
8 ) The Pallino cannot hit the back wall on its initial toss. It is allowed to hit the back wall during game play.
9 ) Thrown Bocce balls cannot hit the back wall. This is considered out of boundaries and the ball is dead.

Throwing a Beer Olympics event vs. hosting a Day of Games – What’s better? and
Some extra stuff you’ll need to make your Beer Olympics a SUCCESS!:
Beer Olympics Events vs. Day of Games Events:
Beer Olympics Games - Beer Pong (Beirut), Quarters, Case Race, Flip Cup (Boat Race), Beer Tasting, Beer Die, Beer Chug, Obstacle Course, QB Challenge
Day of Games Events – EVERYTHING included at a Beer Olympics PLUS Sporting Events – Cornhole, Bocce, Horseshoes, Dodgeball, Ladder Golf, Washers, Egg Toss, Shotput, Long Jump, Disc Golf (Frisbee Golf), Home Run Derby, Over the Line, Volleyball, Prisoner, War, Ace, Poker, Darts, Limbo, Arm Wrestling, Feats of Strength, Hacky Sack, Campus Golf, Staring Contest, Bar Games, Eating contests, + Beer Pong and the rest of the drinking games.
Advantage – The Day of Games – While a Beer Olympics is great for getting wasted, a complete Day of Games is the only way to enjoy drinking, leisure sports, team events, and be competitve.
Beer Olympics Costumes vs. Day of Games Uniforms:
Beer Olympics Costumes - Dress up like a country. Your team will all wear similar colors and corny stereotypes from whatever country you are. Example – If you are Italy… you eat Pizza all day and say things like “Mama Mia!”.
Day of Games Event – Wear an outfit determined by your team – can be anything. If you want to dress up like a county then dress up like a country. Or maybe you want to dress up like the cast from Saved By the Bell? Or characters from Scarface, or Super Troopers, or everyone wants to be animals, or WWF wrestlers from the 80’s… whatever! Anything goes.
Advantage – The Day of Games – The more options the better! Being restricted to dressing up like a country is no fun. Only one team gets to be USA and after that there are only a few other options that are enjoyable. At a DOG event you can decide on whatever uniform suits the team. Props and theme music encouraged.
Beer Olympics Ideas vs. Day of Games Concept:
Beer Olympics Ideas - Organize your friends, find a house with plenty of space, trash the house, drink all day, get wasted, awards ceremony.
Day of Games Events – Invite your buddies, set up 2 major teams or have several teams, pick a place to house the drinking events, use backyard or nearby park for any leisure sports, drink all day, party all night, awards ceremony for winning team and the MVG.
Advantage – The Day of Games – Same idea as Beer Olympics but you do more than just drink.
Beer Olympics Rules vs. Day of Games Format:
Beer Olympics Rules - Teams of 4-6 represent a country. Guys and girls must be on each team. Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals are handed out to the winners of each event. The total medals count will determine the winning country.
Day of Games Format - Teams compete not only in drinking games but also in various leisure sports games. Points are awarded for winning efforts on an individual and team basis. At the end of the day all scores are added and a winning person (MVG) and a winning team are determined. Trophy is awarded to winners.
Advantage – The Day of Games – Who wants to play the “Beer Pong Event” only once?? At the Day of Games you are not stuck to the format of playing each game just once. If you want to play the same game several times you can just keep playing and keep adding up the points for the winners. At a Beer Olympics you are one and done.
Here’s the deal – If you are organizing a Beer Olympics, it’s time to take the next step. Graduate from Beer Olympics to The Day of Games. You still get to create awesome ridiculous-looking uniforms, beer is obviously still involved, but now you can also play games, leisure sports, and compete throughout the entire day. The Day of Games is here. Check out what you are missing out on…
Horseshoes, paddle ball (smashball), and the triple jump. Yes… the triple jump. Week 1 was a complete success.

Anything can happen in this, the first ever, Leisure Sports League LA!
