About DC Bocce League

What is the DC Bocce League?
The DC Bocce League was founded in 2004 by a close group of friends on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. After playing with other recreational leagues around town, the founders decided to put together a social sports experience that was more in tune with their lifestyle. Bocce was the obvious choice! Easy to play, bocce creates a space for players to engage in friendly, casual competition (often with a drink in hand). The League instantly attracted an assorted group of people in their 20s and 30s looking for an excuse to share a unique meet-up experience.

Origin of Major League Bocce
The DC Bocce League began to expand to multiple locations throughout the DC metro-area, including Northern Virginia and Bethesda. After several years operating the DC Bocce League to great success, the founders put together an expansion strategy to bring bocce to cities beyond the DC area. In 2011, the team launched Major League Bocce in Philadelphia, their first location outside of DC. Today, Major League Bocce operates leagues in 10 cities across the US. 
Why Bocce?
Bocce is attractive to all types of people because it's so versatile - you can play on grass in the middle of a city park, or you can roll right next to the ocean on a sandy beach. The sport is both casual to play and competitive in strategy. Men and women are on equal footing in this sport, and age is never an issue (as long as you're over 21!). We've found that it's one of the best things to do and ways to meet people in DC and beyond!
Charity is an integral part of the program in DC and beyond. Since the league was founded in 2004, Major League Bocce has donated a percentage of registration fees to local and national charity organizations in honor of the seasons' winning teams. To date, Major League Bocce has donated over $150,000 to hundreds of charities on behalf of our championship teams.
