Are you looking for a unique holiday party?

Were you thinking of a fun activity to build company morale?

Would you like to have your business group network and socialize with us?

The Bocce Guy and the Joy of Bocce LLC (family) can run your corporate outing or bocce party.  

We offer a unique venue that will break from the old -- exciting bocce action, great food and camaraderie. 

You can be sure this is one holiday party that your guests will remember for years to come!

 Mario Pagnoni, author of the best selling Joy of Bocce, is a retired public school teacher and high school coach of 32 years.  He is a frequent public speaker and often attends bocce ribbon cutting ceremonies and other bocce related tournaments and events.  He has also helped the Martignetti Family Charity Bocce Tournament raise over $100,000 for organizations such as the Jimmy Fund and the Joey Fund.  A frequent radio and television guest, he tirelessly promotes the game via his appearances and writing.  He'll help make your event successful. 

We are very popular on the west coast and in mid-America, we are the first in the East to offer such programs. When corporate managers in California saw the social dynamics and camaraderie associated with bocce company parties, they were "hooked." We think you will be too.

A group or company can rent our services for a four-hour (or longer) event. 

The fee includes:

· Facility rental 

· Use of bocce courts set up right on the function hall carpet (or outdoors on the lawn)

Non-Profit Charitable event

Logan’s Bocce Bash



Here’s a fund-raiser that we put together  on short notice that turned out extremely well.  Three-year-old Logan  qualified for an expensive stem-cell procedure in Dusseldorf, Germany  which has had great results treating cerebral palsy. 

So, my family and friends as well as local  businesses mobilized for a good cause.  We raised $25,000 dollars in an afternoon.  We set up the venue the night before.  Ten  courts were laid down to accommodate a twenty team tournament.  All played at the same time – no down  time.  

Four courts are our usual 12 by 80 footers made of vinyl fence  posts and the other six are 12′ by 60′ templates from Backyard Bocce.   

The venue was an indoor soccer field at the PhanZone in Hampstead, NH.

We made sure the sponsors get some ink and  encourage people to patronize their establishments.  

We need to support  the businesses and individuals who support us. And we celebrated with Fresh fruit, bagels and creme cheese 

and pastry from Mann Orchards.  Special thanks to Greg Debrocke and  Carmela Pagnoni for their photos.

Teaching kids to play


Featuring Nevins Library

We regularly teach new kids how to play bocce through a FREE program run by the Nevins Library. 


Our volunteer referees

We normally lay down four courts for this type of event.  Then we have a few referees helping us out.  Here, we have Soupy pointing out which team needs to make the next  shot.


At the end

We offer a FREE bocce book and sometimes medals or a gift to the winner of this tournament during the afternoon activities.
