The backyard league at ABC's HQ in Chicago's near west side is special. The turfed out backyard becomes a bocce wonderland filled with the sound of bocce'd balls, summer jams and a whole mess of people you miss when they're away.
In a way unique to the other leagues, this becomes a sort of family. On Sundays you gather around the hearth of bocce and play this lovable game somewhere that feels secret. The grill will be going all season long and the bar will stay stocked with your favorites. Dogs will lounge—sometimes on the comfy Burrow couches setup around the yard—and teams tend to show up early and stick around late. It's a hang to cap the weekend that's tough to beat.
Teams of 4 will play two games a week for the six week regular season and then everyone participates in the one-week playoffs. This league will get rolling on July 29th, take off Labor Day weekend, and finish up on September 16th. Three courts give us room for 24 teams, so get registered now. League dues are $260/team.
