Gary Vacin

The Sisk Park Bocce Club is looking forward to another great year of camaraderie and competition at the courts located at Sisk Park at Palo Verde.

New and current players can sign up at the club’s table at the Cottonwood Open House from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 14. Players can also register at the club’s annual Wine and Cheese Kick-Off Party starting at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 29, at Sisk Park. Persons can also sign up by sending a $25 per-team entry fee to Beth Derheim, 24649 S. Augusta Ct., Sun Lakes, AZ 85249. Checks should be made out to the Sisk Park Bocce Club. Returning members need to indicate any changes in their address, telephone number or email. New members need to include their address, telephone number and email.

The club welcomes players of all levels of ability with having fun, engaging with old friends and making new ones the prime objective. Don’t know how to play bocce? No problem. Ten minutes of instruction and you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of fun. This is a game that can be enjoyed well into your senior years with little to no physical limitations.

For those unfamiliar with our club, two-player teams are divided into numerous divisions based on their scores in previous sessions. So players are competing against others of comparative skill level. Each team is provided a list of names and telephone numbers of others in their division for round-robin play. Players arrange their games at their convenience.

Fall competition begins in November and runs through January 2018, followed by an awards party later in January at the Sisk Park pavilion. Awards will be presented to players on teams that finish first through third in each division.
