Welcome to Chico Bocce Club!

We are a local non-profit group of volunteers dedicated to promoting the sport of bocce,
both in Chico and beyond through tournaments, leagues, events, and casual play at multiple courts.

Chico Bocce News

Chico Bocce is excited with the incredible spread of the sport and our involvement with the Chico Area Recreation Department to establish four public bocce courts at 20th Street Park.Our outreach has exponentially expanded the number of players young and old to the joy of bocce.

A very dedicated, diverse and thoroughly committed group of people have been playing on bocce courts throughout Chico for many years.  There are the long covered courts at the End of Normal where folks have been competing for cash prizes every week of the year as well as many annual tournaments. There are the backyards at various homes where league play goes on Spring and Fall nights. 100 people are probably playing bocce on a Thursday night in Chico. Players are multi-generational. men and women, from all walks of life but all with a love for the sport and a camaraderie that is irreplaceable. Bocce is all inclusive.  You ask a bocce player what he loves about playing and they will say, it’s the people! I love my people.  Of course, winning is nice too.  NOW, we have big news. We will have public courts at 20th Street Community Park!!!  Huge thanks go out to the CARD Board and Staff for spreading the love. We are so very thankful for their support and financial commitment to building four regulation size courts with lights and a roof. This will ensure that we can play in all weather conditions and also host large tournaments that will bring an entire new group of players to our town and make Chico the Bocce Capital of Northern California!! Watch for more details as the project progresses and what you can do to help.

This fall saw Chico Bocce’s two leagues with 32 teams “on a roll”! Congratulations to Chico Bocce’s Fall Backyard League winners the “Helltown Hotshots” and the Fall Hemlock Street League winners “Chewbocce”.

It was awesome competition and camaraderie!

We love to play BOCCE!
