DC Bocce League coming to the neighborhood

Ever want to throw around some balls? You're in luck. DC Bocce is starting a league in Columbia Heights, to be played at 9th and Spring. I actually have played in DC Bocce leagues for a few years and they're really fun. Unlike a lot of the co-ed sports in the city, like kickball and such, nobody really gets too serious about it and really anybody can play it, you just have to toss a ball. And getting bar deals is always fun. Here's the press release from them:

DC Bocce is coming to Columbia Heights!
After years of playing on weeknights, DC Bocce has finally opened a new league on Saturdays to the satisfaction of bocce weekend warriors everywhere!  Starting in early October, DC Bocce will play Saturday afternoons on the field at the Raymond Education Campus (915 Spring Road, NW)---a quick walk from both the CoHi and Petworth Metro stops.  Games will be played at 1:00 and 2:00pm followed by a happy hour excursion to our neighborhood sponsor bar for beer and food specials.  Anyone can easily sign-up at http://www.dcbocce.com and opt to create a new team, join a existing friend's team, or register as an individual.  We're also registering for Fall Indoor Bocce at Tom Tom in AdMo and registration is NOW OPEN for both.  We hope to see the people of Columbia Heights out this fall!
 Below are a bunch of photos from the action:

Considering the dealing that takes place on that corner, this is going to be interesting.

And since I live across the street, it's going to be entertaining to watch!
