Test your skill at one of the world's oldest lawn bowling games at Portofino Bay Hotel. Played between two players or two teams of up to four players on a team, bocce is played with eight large balls, four of one color, four of another color, and one small target ball called the "Jack," or "Pallino."
Players seek to place their Bocce Balls closest to the target jack than their opponent or displace the opponent's Bocce Ball and so improve the position of their Bocce Ball in relation to the Jack (Pallino). Bocce can be played in a variety of ways using various rules.
