The COVID-19 Pandemic has touched all of us. We are saddened for the devastation and heartache the disease has caused around the globe and especially to our bocce friends in Italy.

Unfortunately, but obviously for saftey reasons related to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the 2020 World Series of Bocce has been cancelled. The 47th annual bocce event was scheduled for July 16th – 19th. Typically over 100 teams (both Women’s, Men’s) compete in the tournament. The organizers are well aware of the health concerns for the hundreds of players and fans that gather over the mid-summer bocce tournament and party. Here are some photos of past World Series.
Other 2020 bocce tournaments and events at the Toccolana Club in Rome, NY are listed on this schedule on the club’s website. The club boasts 15 courts and regularly hosts leagues for women, men and coed teams. Leagues will cautiously start with state guidelines in place when “restirctions are eased.”
The Bocce Committee encourages league players (and everyone else in Clayton) to patronize our downtown eating establishments. But we want to go further. Among the many victims of this pandemic are those with not enough to eat or who are unable to access other basic services and who, even after the pandemic ends, may be out of a job. Link to article
