The Bocce Ball Scoreboard

May 3, 2013

We’re making progress on the bocce ball court and are hoping that if the rain holds off we can get the majority of it finished this weekend.

If you don’t know what bocce ball is you can read about it here.  My husband is a big game player, doesn’t matter what game it is he’s in, me not so much but I will admit I really like bocce ball.  It’s super easy and you can drink wine while you play!

Here’s what the scoreboard looked like a few weeks ago.

Here’s what it looks like now…

Unfortunately for you I’m the greatest DIY’er explainer but I did break down the materials used to put together the scoreboard.

I will also add that instead of staining the piece my husband decided to paint it with deck paint.  The balls are attached with hooks and eyelets and they are super easy to move when a point is scored.  This project is really my husbands baby so if you have any questions please feel free to comment and I will do my best to answer them!

Here’s hoping the weather stays nice this weekend!  I’m ready for some outdoor cocktails
bocce ball playing!!

If you’re looking for some outdoor inspiration I have a ton of beautiful images and ideas on my outdoor idea board on pinterest.

Happy Weekend!!!

    1. Seriously I would love to have a bocce ball court! I can’t wait to see the final result!!

    1. Hi Laurie,

      My dad is a huge bocce fan and has a bocce court in his back yard. I think this is a great Christmas gift idea for him and I want to build it and give it to him. I am curious if you can tell me a little bit more about the balls you used for scoring. Why are there 4 different colors? And how did you decide on making the high score 12 points? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated! I’m so excited about this idea.

      Thank you,

      Jamie
