Who is the Best Bocce Player in Syracuse? 1 on 1 Tournament!

Our first 1 on 1 tournament using the group stage format, yielded perhaps the best and most tightly contested 1 on 1 tournament ever!

Part of the reason for the high quality of play was that it ended in 4 hours, compared to our longest 1 on 1 tournament which lasted over 9 hours with roughly the same number of competitors.

 

As most 1 on 1 tournaments are, it was a hot day in the sun with no clouds or shade to speak of.  Thank got everybody got free delicious Young Lion beer to drink while they played!

Each tournament presents a very different challenge, and to win all three you have to be very good, very well rounded, and very adaptable.  You even need to be able to recruit a good team.
