Rome Toccolana Club
The Toccolana Club was established in 1925 as a social club by Italian immigrants from the village of Tocco da Casauria in the Province of Pescara in the Abruzzo Region of Italy.
The Toccolana Club has evolved over the years, and now includes members from several ethnic groups.
In addition to providing a place for socialization, the Club provides a venue for Bocce — a lawn bowling game originating in Italy. The game is now played on courts using a fine stone dust base. There are 15 Bocce Courts at the Toccolana Club hosting several men's, women's and co-ed Bocce Leagues, as well as open Bocce for club members.
Annually, the Club hosts "The World Series of Bocce", a three day event that attracts over 120 teams, thousands of spectators. This year will be the 40th Anniversary of World Series of Bocce and prize money in excess of $25,000 will be awarded.
