Lawn Bocce Tournament

Anyone who says bocce is a mellow game meant for grumpy old Italian men obviously has not experienced the RECESS tournament at Governors Island. With more than 120 co-ed players from various creative fields coming out to prove they can handle any ball, you’re in for a real treat!
