Enjoy an outstanding day filled with food, sun, and of course championship beach bocce ball action while raising money in support of Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad’s proven after school programs. In addition, a small portion of the proceeds is donated to the Friends of the Powerhouse and Beach.

The popular annual championship, which typically sells out registration within an hour, attracted a sold-out crowd of 420 teams of seasoned and first-time players who competed in 1002 games on 83 courts in 2017, raising more than $100,000 and bringing the event’s 35-year total fundraising to more than than $1.5 million. Highlighted by colorful costumes, intense competition, and good times, this year’s event boasts 450 two-person teams.

Parking is available at the Del Mar Racetrack (enter through the Solana Gate off of Via de la Valle) and complimentary shuttles are provided to the beach. Spectators are welcome (no charge).

Major sponsors include Vigilucci’s Restaurant Group, DW Holdings, Lee & Associates, Pave-Tech, Saddle Bar, Hudson Printing, Stone Brewing, Birra Moretti and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club.
