Beach Bocce Ball Tournament

September 17, 2022

Mariner’s Point - Mission Bay


The popular annual championship, which typically sells out within an hour, attracts a  crowd of 450+ two-person teams of seasoned and first-time players who compete in a round robin tournament. The top two teams move on to single elimination play.

Highlighted by colorful costumes, intense competition, and a lot of laughter, teams vie for the title of World Champion in four different divisions – Mens Intermediate, Mens Open, Womens, and Mixed.

The City of Del Mar has opted to not renew our permit for 2022. Basically, we’ve outgrown the space, and were faced with the task of finding a new home.

After months of due diligence and research. we landed on Mariner’s Point In Mission Bay (near Belmont Park). We are super excited to let you know that we have been approved to hold the event on Saturday, September 17!

Now we are working on the fine print –  mainly with regard to adult beverages. As it stands now, you can consume responsibly within our VIP tent only.  We are starting another application process to allow our players to consume within the tournament area, and another to allow minors to attend in a “mixed ages alcohol pilot program.” At this point in time, we cannot guarantee or success at either of these goals, but you can be sure we will try our best!

We are currently accepting sponsor and VIP registrations. Regular team registrations will most likely open up at the end of May, once we’ve been able to finalize the applications outlined above.
