Syracuse Festa Italia Bocce Tournament.  Every year the city of Syracuse holds a bocce tournament during the Italian Festival, and every year (at least for the last 7 years) somebody from Turbo Bocce wins it.

This tournament takes place Saturday September 12th, at 9 am.  It goes all day long, probably until dark if you are in it to the end.  This one is teams of 4, so think about who you want to play with.  Its played on the grass in front of City Hall.

 

TBD:

Turbo Bocce’s one-on-one tournament (expect this sometimes in late July)

Turbo Bocce’s Champions League – where the top teams from each of our three leagues get together to crown a single winner.
