Bocce isn’t just about competition; it’s about camaraderie and community. Pam emphasizes that leagues are the backbone of the OTOW Bocce Club, providing a structured yet inclusive environment for players to come together and hone their skills. From October through April, league play unfolds on a regular schedule, with teams of four players competing against one another to accumulate points throughout the season.

The culmination of the league season is the eagerly awaited Best of Bocce tournament, where the top teams vie for glory and bragging rights. Yet, even beyond organized play, many members find themselves drawn to the courts outside of scheduled times, simply because they love the game and the sense of belonging it brings.

Indeed, bocce is more than just a pastime; it’s a reflection of the diverse personalities and passions within the OTOW community. From the competitive edge displayed on the courts to the lighthearted banter shared among friends, the club offers something for everyone.

For Pam and many others, bocce represents an opportunity to shine in a way they might not otherwise experience in traditional sports. It’s a game that rewards strategy and skill but also leaves plenty of room for laughter and friendship along the way.

So, whether you’re a seasoned player or a curious newcomer, Pam encourages all to give bocce a try. With its blend of accessibility, affordability, and undeniable fun, the OTOW Bocce Club invites you to join in the excitement and discover the joy of bocce for yourself.
