  • The tournament is single elimination, with a Bear Pong losers bracket for all teams that get eliminated, so the merriment goes on!
  • 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!
