Bocce Ball League Info

Skyline is Duluth’s premiere bocce ball league with over 60 teams each week! It’s a 14-week season (+ playoffs) and leagues start the week of May 28th (after Memorial Day). For bocce ball leagues, you have your choice of playing either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday with weekly games starting at 6pm, 7pm or 8pm. Each team will have 1 hour to play 3 games. 

Deck Upgrades
On the bocce and bags decks, we are upgrading with more seating, lights, etc. On the other deck near the outdoor bar, we’ll have patio games to play before or after volleyball. 

Open Bocce Courts
Before our bocce ball leagues start at Skyline, we’ll have the courts open to play and test your skills! Bring your team to practice, play a pre-season game, or learn the rules. We’ll have our league coordinator available to answer questions (and maybe give a few tips!). Open courts will be available May 21-23 from 6-9pm while volleyball games are played nearby. The bocce courts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
