Best Bocce Ball Courts 

Courts on Joe Di Maggio Drive

Friday night bocce ball in Martinez is a huge deal. Families gather, many bring picnic baskets, and often there's music. It's enjoyable whether you're an accomplished bocce player or know nothing of this traditional, leisurely, but highly competitive sport. The balls are red and green, of course, and it's no longer played only by old white men wearing black. Your ball will run true on the tightly packed court surfaces. The support of teammates is vigorous and unyielding, and the razz from the opposition is raucous but never out of bounds. This safe, family-friendly site offers shelters, shade trees, and tables, with picnic areas nearby. After the game, step out onto Joe DiMaggio Drive and walk along shady, graveled pathways through the Martinez Shoreline to the Carquinez Strait. It's within walking distance of downtown, where you could find some bargains at the area's many antique stores.
