Congratulations to our Ladies and Men’s teams who have just returned victoriously from the National Bocce Titles in Melbourne.
The National Bocce Titles were this year held at the Veneto Club in Bulleen, Melbourne over the 5th-8th June long weekend.
The ladies team of Barbara Jones, Maria Parlato and Luz Van Hemmen, provided spectators with some exciting games to watch over the long weekend, but narrowly missed progressing to the finals in the Doubles Event with Victoria Regional taking the semi-final win by a narrow margin.
Barbara Jones again proved her dominance this year at the Titles by taking first place in the Precision Event and the Bowl Throw Event, and placed second in Australia in the Ladies Singles Event. The Best and Fairest trophy was also awarded to Barbara Jones in the Women’s category.
The men’s team of Pio Bunin, Giancarlo Caneto, Neil Parlato and Marco Bunin played some outstanding bocce over the weekend, and narrowly missed progressing to the finals in the Triples event with Victoria taking the semi-final win by a narrow margin.
Congratulations to all our players for their hard work and commitment to the game of Bocce at the National titles.
