The 1st annual GLT Bocce At The Village is a friendly competition played by 2-person teams on outdoor grass courts at Normandy Village. We'll hold a double-elimination tournament with 32 teams. First round winning teams will continue in the Leaders Bracket; first round  teams coming up a bit short will continue in the Also-Rans Bracket (because you're all winners to us). Champions will be crowned and prizes awarded to the 2 final teams. GLT provides the sets of game balls.

Watch a short video on bocce rules scoring.

A team is 2 players and your $30 registration fee includes one 2017 GLT Bocce At The Village tournament t-shirt for each player. WOW! That's a deal. You'll pick up your shirt at the venue on Saturday, September 9th. We'll have a very limited number of bocce shirts available for sale at the tournament.

Gildan Ring-spun softstyle t-shirt in light and cozy 65/35 poly/cotton blend. Dark Heather gray with red/black/white silk screen on front, sponsors in black on back. Adult unisex sizes Small-2XL. Machine wash & dry. $20/ea

In addition to being just a darned good time, all GLT events are fundraisers. We can't bring you any of them without the incredible support of our sponsors. We thank them and encourage you to take the time to thank them, too!
