Newhall Park – Open Play Season is active

Bocce Ball Open Play – Newhall Park Concord

The 2017 Bocce Ball Open season is in session. We begin play at 8:30 am and play on the Bocce courts in Newhall Park, Concord.  Newhall Park is located on Turtle Creek Rd. between Treat Blvd. and Ayers Rd. Play is open to all SIR members and partners. You do not require any knowledge of the game as we will show you how to play and explain the rules that govern the game of Bocce Ball.  We provide all the equipment (Bocce Balls and score boards). I organize whoever comes to play into teams. If you have any questions, please call the Activity Chairman.

This is the status as of May 8. We now have 12 Members who have participated.  Larry Jasmann is a new addition to our players this year. He is off to a very good start.
