Sign up as an individual for Ferry Bocce

We happily accommodate individual players by teaming you up with up to (7) other similarly interested folks. These ad hoc teams are a very successful and a popular part of our league. (Players have built long-lasting relationships, seriously).

Cost for participation is $175 per individual player per season, which is approximately $21/evening. This fee provides for a bocce instructor (on hand each day to organize league play) as well as drink services (water, soft drinks, wine, and Anchor Brewing Beer).

Enjoy friendly competition, while engaging with folks from many of the companies from the Financial District neighborhood, at the same time you’ll be having fun with your friends and workmates.

We play Monday through Thursday evenings (500-800 PM). We also play Wednesday lunchtime (1205-135 PM), during our 2 summer/fall seasons.

Your team plays one night a week for one hour. The scheduled start time will rotate every week as all the teams play each other. Games start at 515 PM, 615 PM, and 715 PM.

The schedule for the season, as well as standings, will be posted on our website for your whole team to view (

Teams will be constructed of 8 players; only (3) are needed to play, but your team can consist of less if necessary (3 players during the regular season only). During the playoffs, 4 players are needed to avoid forfeit.
