The American Bocce Company
Cleo's Bocce Summer 2v2, Tuesdays


We're brining bocce back and we're coming back to the beloved back patio courts of Cleo's. We've put a lot of thought into the return and really look forward to the unique bocce arena vibes we'll be able to provide with the Cleo's homies. 

We'll be on their 2 built-in courts with the arena to ourselves. Cleo's and ABC are still rocking with Goose Island and Fernet Branca and we highly recommend their goods when you're thirsty. 

The whole Return to Play Plan and Policies are here, but I'll call attention to a few here. 

  • Teams will consist of 2 players and you'll play on the same side, walking the court between frames. You'll play 2 back-to-back games a week (different opponents). 
  • The season will be 4-weeks in total: 3-week regular season and 1-week playoff. 
  • Every ball will go through a 5-step process throughout the run of games: 1) Rinse, 2) Soap & scrub (20-sec), 3) Rinse, 4) Air dry (5-min), 5) Towel dry before play resumes. Additionally, teams will have their own pallino and players will have their own balls.
  • Masks will be worn by all when within 6' of fellow players. Referees will wear masks. Exceptions for drinking, but not holding a drink.
  • Positive tests will be kept confidential and communicated to the rest of the league. Teams will have the option to withdraw in the case of a reported positive test. 

League Details: Week 1 is Tuesday, July 14th and the Week 4 Playoffs are scheduled for Tuesday, August 4th. First games get rolling at 6:30pm and the last at 9:30. We will play unless rain pushes us off the courts. 

ABC League Standards:  A team consists of 2 players and is encouraged to have an alternate in mind. Subs will have to come from outside of the league.  League dues are $200/team with a 50% non-refundable deposit. Your spot in the league is not guaranteed until the balance is at $0. Game time needs and requests are accommodated to the best of our ability and in priority order of registration. If you have questions, please contact
