Bocce players celebrate end of another successful year

Pat Milich

The PebbleCreek Bocce Association’s 2017-2018 season has come to an end as members of the board of directors begin planning for the next season, set to begin in September. Registrations for the fall 2018 bocce season are now being accepted on a first come, first served basis. Popularity of the sport, especially since two-night leagues were added last year, is prompting the Bocce leadership to keep a close watch over the number of registrations already being submitted since the spring season ended last month.

Due to the deadline for articles to be submitted for the June PC Post, winners of the Day and Night Championships will not be announced until the July issue.

According to Bocce Association Treasurer Mollie McErlean, who handles registrations and sets up the rosters for fall, winter and spring season play, there currently are two day leagues (Wednesday and Friday) and two night leagues (Tuesday and Thursday) each season. Because there can be two tiers of play on each of the Day Leagues, a maximum of 32 teams can be scheduled each season. A bocce team is limited to a maximum of 12 players.

However, due to time restrictions placed on Night League play by the HOA, there can only be one tier of competition, limiting the number of teams to a maximum of 16 each season.

If registrations come in early enough and the numbers warrant it the Board of Directors may consider adding a third night to allow more residents to enjoy playing bocce under the lights. For further registration information contact Mollie at 623-935-2822 or

Enjoy your summer sojourn, Bocce players! v
