March 26, Tuesday / Bocce Warmup and Practice session / Campo di Bocce / 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM / Cost-tbd

In preparation for our Annual IAHF Bocce Tournament, it was suggested to have a clinic and orientation for those unfamiliar with the sport or who have not played the game in a while. To help grow some new interested players, we are happy to comply with this request. 

We have a tentative date for the Bocce Clinic set for Tuesday, March 26, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Campo di Bocce in Los Gatos to accommodate those who may be coming from work. The IAHF will rent one or two courts, depending on attendance, and simply divide the court rental cost and light refreshments among those playing. We welcome ages 12 and up for this great family fun opportunity.

If you are interested in attending the clinic signup as "interested" by clicking the Gold Button below before Tuesday, March 19, or call the IAHF to reserve your spot.
