A group of people play bocce ball in the Ruth and Bill Scott Student Plaza

Bocce is a mixture of lawn bowling and Skee-ball with a hint of shuffleboard. Bocce matches are divided into rounds called frames. Each team tosses four heavy bocce balls onto the playing field or court as close as possible to a small white ball called a pallino.

New players are welcome!
