US Bocce Federation Official Rules
USBF “OPEN Bocce” Rules
There are a few sets of rules floating around the internet regarding how to play bocce in the USA / Canada / North America. It is fantastic that so many people love to play bocce in both little towns and big cities. When Italians settled in different parts of North America, they brought the tradition of bocce with them and although the basic premise of the sport is the same, some bocce clubs have developed of their own unique rules. Above is a link to the OFFICIAL BOCCE RULES set by the US BOCCE FEDERATION. These are the standard rules that clubs in all states and in Canada use for “Open” bocce leagues and tournaments. The US Bocce National Championships play the “Open” Bocce games with these rules and the Punto Raffa Volo games are played according to the rules in the links below.
If you would like us to post your specific club’s rules, email them to us. It may be easy for your to refer players to this page or you page on the Global Bocce so they can view them virtually or download them. It will save you the time to print them for your players.
