As Covid-19 restrictions are loosened, some of our favorite events will be back in central New York this summer, including the 2021 World Series of Bocce.

Romans are rejoicing as the World Series of Bocce is returning to the Toccolana Club from July 15th - July 18th, 2021. This is fantastic news after it was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Toccolana Club says it's committed to hosting a fun and competitive event while making it safe for all participants and spectators. It's unknown at this time if we'll see the normal full-blown event or if they'll scale it back.

Bocce is a lawn bowling game that originated in Italy played on natural soil and asphalt courts. The game is now played on courts using a fine stone dust base. There are 15 Bocce Courts at the Toccolana Club, hosting several men's, women's, and co-ed Bocce Leagues, as well as open Bocce for club members.
