Bocce

You can think of modern bowling as a distant cousin of bocce. In England, they have “bowls”, a lawn version of the game using a flattened ball which is rolled like a wheel (bocce balls are always spherical). The Latin word bottia (ball) is the root of the Italian word boccio or Bocce. During a game, a ball is either rolled or tossed underhanded down a long lane with the aim of coming to rest near a smaller target ball called a pallino or boccino . Some form of bocce is played in more countries than any other ball game, with the exception of soccer. Still, Romans are the ones who spread the popularity of the game throughout the Roman Empire.  Read more

Other differences from football include a smaller pitch, smaller goals, and a reduced game duration. Matches are played outdoors on AstroTurf or artificial grass pitches that is enclosed within a barrier or “netted cage” to prevent the ball from leaving the playing area and keep the game flowing. The popularity of five-a-side youth football has grown tremendously within Cape Town and South Africa. Many organizations and companies have chosen this format and modified it slightly to promote an environment where children can excel early in youth sport. Read more
