Sisk Bocce Ball now underway

Gary Vacin

Play is now under way for more than 140 Sisk Bocce Ball players who are enjoying competition in this fun-filled sport.

For those who are unfamiliar with our club, players are divided into up to 10 divisions. Division director Terry Sporleder places players in each division based on their scores in previous sessions, so players are competing against others of comparative skill level.

Each player is provided a sheet with names and telephone numbers of others in their division for round-robin play. Players arrange their games with others in their division at their convenience.

Fall competition runs through January 10, 2016 and will be followed by a wine and cheese awards party on January 17 at the Sisk Park pavilion. Awards will be presented to players who finish first through third in each division. The club also will sponsor an inter-club tournament and a tournament against players from the Oasis Park club this spring and a potluck awards party April 3.

Interested persons who missed out on the fun of the fall session may sign up for a winter-spring session running from January 18 to March 2. Contact Terry Sporleder at 802-1288 or club President Irene D’Aloisio at 339-0243 for more information.
