  • The winners are crowned Bocce Champs of PoPville and receive accolades, a charity donation to St. Baldrick’s Foundation in their name, and other lavish prizes (bar tabs or trophies perhaps?).
  • Players receive official PoPville Charity Bocce Tourney t-shirt, beverages, party specials, and an epic spring day on the rooftop.
  • A schedule and bracket will be sent out as the date approaches.
  • Post-tourney party kicks off at 5:00pm at Acre 121 (just downstairs from the rooftop) with exclusive specials for players and friends, PLUS live music from “Route 42“ singer-songwriter René Moffatt!

More Fun & Games!
In addition to bocce, the PoPville rooftop tournament includes music, movie projection of [lawn] bowling saga The Big Lebowski (among others), and buckets of Italian beer and DC Bocce League favorite, Peroni. Plus a post-tourney party at neighborhood bar Acre 121 for players and friends!

If you are new to bocce don’t worry, it’s easy to pick-up and learn on the fly and you can join us early at 12:30pm on the rooftop for a tutorial.

  • How close is it to being full? We’re still trying to get our act together to have a team.

  • There seems to be a problem witht he registration link.

  • Just registered a full team! Super excited, and glad that there is a losers bracket plan since I don’t think we’ll be very good… Sounds like a totally fun afternoon — thanks, PoP, for the post! Oooh, will official PoP shirts be on sale?

    • Every player will get a PoPville tourney shirt as a thank you for playing. And if you live on the Hill and are looking to give a season of bocce a try, we have space available on Tuesday nights at Garfield Park. The tourney will be a great season warm-up.
