Bocce Ball Court Surfaces
Bocce Ball is a sport that belonging to the boules sport family, and is closely related to bowls. Developed into its present form in Italy, it is now played around the world.
It is a social game, having been in existence for over 200 years.
In standard bocce, the balls must be rolled. Therefore, it is played on a specifically designed and constructed court with static sides and a flat and level surface made of compacted crushed stone surface.
Bocce courts consist of a flat and level playing surface, retained within a 6" or taller perimeter curbing. The dimensions of the court may very between 8' to 14' in width and 60' to 91' in length. The United States Bocce Federation (USBF) recommends that courts used for international, tournament, or open play should be 13' x 91'.
A typical club court may have dimensions around 13' x 76'. Most recreational courts are somewhat smaller in both length and width than the USBF recommends. These would typically be around 10' x 60' up to and around 12' x 70'.
Our Bocce Ball Services
We can provide you with a brand new court or provide a service to help you carry out essential maintenance to your existing court.
Normally, we offer this clay court option. However, we can also provide you with an Artificial Turf system which is simply bonded to any existing asphalt or concrete base.
Construction - Clay Courts
Usually, the sub base, screenings and clay material are contained by a pressure treated wood, concrete block or poured concrete border. The border will usually include a series of drainage holes to facilitate water removal after a rain or watering.
Ideally, clay courts require an irrigation system as they must be moist to be firm. Therefore, we can also often install an automatic irrigation system of 1 or 2 sprinkler heads to irrigate the court. However, courts can still be hand watered when needed with a hose.
Our clay courts surfaces are made finely crushed green or red aggregates with a gypsum binder which, when moist, provide a playing surface that is easy to install and maintain, having a 1" deep surface of clay over a firm drainage base. We initially install clay to a level of 1-1/4" in depth (which compacts to 1" thick) over a firm drainage base of crushed stone (with fines so that it compacts to a firm base yet drains well) covered by 1/2" of stone screenings.
An alternative may be Manufactured Surfaces which is an excellent low-maintenance bowling and bocce playing surface.
