A New Season

A new bocce season will soon be upon us. We are looking forward to seeing some old faces and hopefully some new faces to join us this year. We welcome all interested parties to join us. Fill out the Membership application which allows you access to the shed that contains bocce balls, court broom and scoreboard for you and your family. Dues are $20 for an individual, or $40 for a family. Also, if you currently have a team, make sure to indicate it on your membership application. If you are short a player or two perhaps we can fill those slots with new players. So far we may have two new teams joining us.

If you have any suggestions or thoughts about the upcoming year’s season, please email Rob Singer our commissioner. He'd love to hear from you. rsinger1347@gmail.com

Continue to keep an eye on this site. Perhaps before the season starts we can all get together and discuss rules, start times and scoring.

New Club Leadership

Since Lou Danielczyk resigned as Commissioner two years ago, our interim Commissioners both Glenda Leake and Jeannie Shepard found how much work was involved while the rest of us just showed up to play. Running the club and administering to our court is too much for one person to handle alone. Which is why we have instituted an IBC Executive Committee to run the club. Several of our members have volunteered to head up the sub-committees and if you have an interest please reach out them. We're sure they would appreciate the help. The whole committee should meet sometime in late April to plan for the upcoming season and as needed afterwards. Inter-committee meetings can be held as needed to establish total number of teams, schedules, requirements for court maintenance etc. The committee leadership is as follows. Contact addresses and phone numbers will distributed when teams are established. Until then use the club's email:Island Bocce Club

Tentative Schedule

To the right you will see a tentative schedule for the upcoming season. We've used numbers rather than team names as at this stage we do not know how many teams will be playing, who they will be and who will be on them. The posted schedule is for 11 teams as we had last year.

You will notice that with 11 teams, there will be a single game on Tuesdays to accommodate the odd number of teams. If we go to only 10 teams, we can delete the Tuesday game and if we expand to 12 teams we can double up on Tuesday. If we have more even more teams we will expand to an earlier game on one day.

As much as we all enjoyed playing each other twice in the past, it lengthened the schedule to the point of waning interest. If you would like we could discuss creating a fall league if there is any interest

About Referees

In general we've asked players from a team playing earlier or later in the evening to referee the match they are not playing in. It makes for a long night for them, especially if they've skipped dinner to ref. But in cases where matches have been moved to accomodate conflicting schedules, where there is no second game, we've suggested that the side not throwing referee the side throwing, with both teams conferring. As far as we've heard, this has worked well enough to consider using the method of refereeing for all our games. Comments are welcome.


Doubles League Schedule 2024


Games to begin at 5:30PM and 6:30PM.

Scoring for matches is still under discussion. While some members are adamant on scoring matches won by 1 point for wins, 0 for a loss only. This method creates a jumble for standings, especially in the beginning of the season. We are suggesting continuing scoring as we did last season. Each match will consist of two games to 7 points. In the case of each team winning a game in a match, there will be a tie breaker to 5 points to determine the winner of the match. The teams will receive 2 points for each game won. Total points scored in each match will be tallied toward a season total and in season standings based on matches won.

Downloadable calendar schedules will be available here once they are created. Those schedules may not reflect the most recent changes due to conflicts and postponements. This webpage should reflect the most recent changes.
