The McFarland Bocce Park is located at William McFarland Park, just North of the intersection of Marsh and Siggelkow Roads, between the Ice Arena and the Curling Club.
Teams of 4 – 6 people play on evening leagues throughout the season. These are normally held on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Sessions are 8 weeks long. Cost to be on a league is $40 per person.
A Wednesday morning league is available for seniors. The cost is $30 for the 8 week session.
Many organizations use the courts for special events. Consider holding your company outing, family reunion, or organization at the courts. Grills for cooking and picnic tables are available. As many as 32 people can play at one time. Bathrooms and a drinking fountain are nearby.
Sunday Pick-Up Games
Normally someone is at the courts on Sundays (weather permitting) from 2 – 5 pm for people to drop in and learn how to play the game.
Seniors may check out a set of bocce balls for 24 hours at a refundable fee of $5 through the Senior Outreach office, 5915 Milwaukee Street McFarland. Bocce balls are provided for league play. Otherwise, people may bring their own bocce balls to the courts to play for their own leisure when courts are not in use by scheduled leagues or events.
