Wednesday Petworth Division
Thanks for a Great Season!
Congrats to all the teams that made into the Elite 8 and Final Four in the Petworth Playoff Bracket. In the final championship game, The Washington Bocce Club took it all the way in a final 12-9 match against I like to fart. Great season, everyone!
Also, congrats to Breaking Bocce: Spadoni and the Meatballs for winning the Peroni/Blue Moon pitcher contest with a grand total of 31 tickets.
Can't wait to see everyone next season.

The team with the most tickets at the end of the season will win a $300 gift certificate to the restaurant of their choice.
Things to Know on Game Nights
Each Wednesday afternoon, head to the bleachers at Park View Rec Center to check in with a Blackshirt volunteer (Lauren or Gina) at the field, where you will be paired with the team you are playing against. You will be responsible for setting up your court space at a size of approximately 5x25 paces.
Games will be played to 16 points or one hour, whichever comes first.
When you are done with your game, please pack up your bocce set and hand in your scoresheet to any Blackshirt, and then head to the bar for the bocce specials!
In the event of a weather-related cancelation, make-up games will most likely take place on Thursday nights.
Check out our rules for more details. Standings and pictures will be updated a few days after your games are done. Please be sure to observe all bar rules on game nights.
Feel free to contact your league manager Lauren with any questions.
