All About Bocce Balls

An adult tournament sized bocce ball is 4-1/2 inches in diameter and weighs about three pounds. The pallina or jack, which is basically the target ball, is 1-3/4 inches in diameter. There are smaller and lighter versions available. A set of eight balls is needed to play; four balls of one color and four of another color. Each ball has a distinctive color or pattern on it, to make it easily identifiable. Bocce balls are similar to bowling or billiard balls as they have a wood center and a poly urethane resin exterior, while others are one piece composite resin, however, plastic balls are available for children. They need to be precise and durable. Glow in the dark balls are also available. When buying balls you should take into account the age group they are for and the type of bocce that will be played.
