There are four balls to a side or team, and they are generally made in two colors to distinguish the balls of one team from the opposing team. The large balls are also inscribed with distinctive lines to identify the balls of the players on the same team. 2. Bocce balls may be composed of wood or composition materials and should be of equal size. Official league and tournament ball sizes may be from 107 mm (4.20") to 110 mm (4.33") and 2.0 to 2.25 lbs. weight. 3. The color of the balls is immaterial provided that the four balls of one team are clearly and visibly distinct from the four balls of the opposing team. 4. Pallina must not be larger than 63 mm (2-1/2") or smaller than 48 mm (1.875") and should be of a

color visibly distinct from both bocce ball colors. 5.

If an athlete is visually impaired a volunteer may hold a beeper near the pallina to identify its position during delivery. 7. Ramps may be used when an athlete does not have the physical ability to roll with their hand or hands. Ramps and other assistance devices may be used with the approval of the Competition Committee.

The court size will be 30 feet in length and 12 feet in width. The court will be open (shaped like the letter "U") on one end. This opening will allow for the easy movement of wheelchair and severely physically-disabled athletes. III. The bocce balls may be 4" in diameter and are approximately 1 pound. IV. Three Attempt Rule - The team possessing the pallina will have 3 attempts at placing the pallina within the 10 mark and before the 5 mark on the opposite end.
