Lawn Bowling (Bocce Ball) can be traced back to the 13th Century and is a fun and easy game to play for amusement, socializing and a little fun competition. Join NYSN for a great night in Central Park as the sun sets over the NYC skyline. We'll teach you all you need to know and get to playing several rounds right away. Space is limited to 16 people.
What is Lawn Bowling? Also known as Bocce Ball is a sport in which the objective is to roll small balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty". The team with the most large balls closest to the smaller ball wins!
