The city’s Parks Department will play host to the qualifying rounds for their Citywide Bocce Tournament on Sept. 12 in parks throughout the five boroughs.
Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village will be the site for the Queens qualifying round. The Bronx tournament will be held at Pelham Bay Park; Brooklyn’s Dyker Beach Park will be that borough’s location; James J. Walker Park will hold the Manhattan qualifier; and Staten Island will play at South Beach Wetlands.
The best teams during the qualifiers will advance to the championship round on Sept. 26 in South Beach, Staten Island where one borough will be crowned the citywide winner.
Registration for the tournaments is currently open. Adults only are welcome to join, either individually or as a group of up to four. Beginners and experienced bocce players are welcome.
