“Dear PoPville Readers:

I am one of the founding members of the DC Bocce League (started it way back in 2004!) and I’m curious to find out how many couples met playing in the League. We used to keep track of our “bocce couples” — players that met at bocce and eventually married — on our website.

Unfortunately as the League has grown, it’s been difficult to keep the page up to date. I’m putting out a call to your readers to find out who’s missing from this page! Add your comments to this post or send us an email at [email protected] to be included.

Full disclosure: I recently married and met my spouse playing bocce!

If you’re looking to meet area singles or just want an excuse to be social once a week, you can sign up to play in the DC Bocce League this winter. Play bocce indoors at one of these local bars:

  • Tuesdays at Shaw’s Tavern (Shaw)
  • Tuesdays at the G.O.A.T. (Arlington)
  • Wednesdays at the American Legion (Capitol Hill)
  • Thursdays at Lou’s City Bar (Columbia Heights)
  • Thursdays at Buffalo Billiards (Dupont Circle)

Use discount code COUPLES to get $20 off registration.

Readers — thanks for your help. Maybe we’ll see you at bocce this winter!

Are you looking for a weeknight activity that’s super social and easy to join? Embrace your inner-Italian and try your hand at bocce! The game isn’t difficult; just about anyone who can palm a ball can have fun playing. Plus, unlike most other sports, you stand on the same side of the court as your opponents, so socializing is the norm — what better way to distract someone than by cracking a ball joke or two?

Let the good times roll all summer long when you sign up to play in the DC Bocce League. All players receive:

  • 8 weeks of bocce good times
  • Beer and food specials at the bar
  • A sexy team t-shirt
  • Weekly contests and giveaways
  • FREE keg party at the end of the season

Choose the location right for you:
VA: Alexandria, Ballston, Columbia Pike, Courthouse
DC: Capitol Hill, Columbia Heights, Dupont, Downtown, U Street
MD: Bethesda
