Half active. Half social. That’s the not-so-secret formula behind the Seattle Bocce league.

The Seattle Bocce is a locally operated social sports league that's out to revolutionize the way Seattle newcomers and natives meet, socialize and have fun.

Each Seattle Bocce league consists of once a week league games, post-game parties and specials at local bars, socializing with other league members and lots of fun.

Seattle Bocce is designed and operated so that anyone, of any athletic and physical ability can play and enjoy themselves while meeting new people.

“We are league player ourselves, we’ve played in leagues that were great and others that weren’t as fun,” said founder Giovanni Marcantoni. “When everyone is able to participate no matter their skill, that’s when people are the most social and have the most fun.”

Registration for all leagues can be found on San Francisco Bocce’s website http://www.seattlebocceball.com and costs $50 per person depending on the league.

Each league registration includes: eight weeks of league play, t-shirts, end of season free beer parties, weekly bar specials, prizes for league champions and other league member perks.

This spring Seattle Bocce will offer three different locations and nights: Tuesdays at Ballard Commons, Wednesdays in Ravenna Park and Thursdays at Gas Works Park.

Seattle Bocce got its start as a couple of guys from Baltimore, MD wanting to bring the fun they had in Washington D.C. playing in Kickball and Bocce leagues with them to Seattle.

“We played in a number of different sport leagues while going to school and working in D.C., but our heart has always been out West and we decided we’d try our hand running leagues back West,” said Marcantoni.

Last summer the league got off the ground for its inaugural season in Capital Hill with about 100 people playing. The league kept things rolling with a special glow-in-the-dark league that was widely popular and sold out.

“We have had so much success last season we decided we thought it was time to start growing the league and bringing social bocce to everyone in Seattle,” said Marcantoni.

Registration for the spring season is now open and is done all online at http://www.playbigapple.com and closes April 28th with spring leagues starting the week of May 5th.
