The Monday Night BocceDome standouts as our longest running bocce league in Chicago. If you don't know, here's what you need to know: The league is competitive and the vibe is extra. I mean that in the most generous and positive way. Yes, the cream of the crop plies their bocce trade on the Monday turf. These teams are dedicated and consistent. Players will also referee and some of the bocce brass lets their hair down and plays in this league. It helps foster one of the most exciting nights of the week. And this is the last season before MNB takes off the month of July, so get your kicks in now.
We're consistently looking for ways to make the ABC experience even richer. This season you can look forward to more carnival style mini games, a chance to get your own team shirts printed, and more surprises (that may or may not rhyme with holla). Sure, it's nice to be outside, but it's also nice to test yourself against the best. There are six other nights of the week to spend (playing bocce) outside, right?
The league is popping at 4 courts, which allows for 32 teams (aka bigger than the NBA). (Note: The summer tends to lead to a league closer to 24 teams on 3 courts. Go ahead and prove me wrong.) We break off into two conference, one early and one late. Find the conference that is right for your schedule, but know it's done on a first come, first served basis. You know we have that New Belgium craft beer goodness on special and that Fernet Branca is the official spirit of ABC.
