Herons Glen Bocce

 

Overview

Welcome to Bocce at Herons Glen. The community has four bocce courts open to all residents of the Glen.  Equipment is provided and available in an on-site storage shed.

 

Playing bocce does not require any particular athletic skills. In fact, many people with disabilities find bocce a very enjoyable form of exercise.

 

The Herons Glen Bocce Association [HGBA] represents the interests of all residents involved in playing Bocce. Membership is optional. The cost is $5 per year. The money goes to maintaining and improving the Bocce courts and to support other resident activities in the Glen.

 

The Association holds an annual meeting the first Thursday in January of each year. At the meeting the members elect five Directors to manage the association for the upcoming year. The HGBA holds an annual banquet, normally during the fourth week of March. Membership in the HGBA is not required to attend the banquet.

 

Open play

At no cost, play is available every afternoon and all day Saturday and Sunday. If you would like to reserve a court there is a weekly signup sheet at the courts in the Bocce bulletin board. If you show to play without a reservation and the court is not previously reserved, you are free to play.
