The Fourth of July – like Thanksgiving, a truly American holiday that’s celebrated by all. It’s a day to share with family, friends and a day to spend outside.
And what better way to bring everyone together than with bocce? Bocce? It’s been around for 5,000 years, played all over the world in different forms and has a rich American history too.
Founding father, George Washington, was a bocce enthusiast. Our president figured out what the rest of the world knew – bocce is fun and family friendly. Washington had a bocce court built at Mt. Vernon in the 1780’s so the he along with his family and friends could enjoy the game.
What makes bocce so appealing? George figured out that bocce is pretty easy to learn, it’s inclusive and it’s fun. Bocce can be played by 2 or more people and is a great forum for camaraderie and competition.
And now, you don’t have to build your own court to enjoy the game. BocceNation.com has developed a portable bocce court, some pretty cool accessories along with simplified scoring that can get you and your family playing and enjoying bocce in mere minutes.

Bocce goes great with BBQ’s. Set your portable bocce court up in the backyard right next to the BBQ and you can keep one eye on the grill while you get into the game. Start a new tradition this year and bring bocce into the backyard.
