What is the small white ball in bocce called?

The small target ball in bocce is called a pallina. Other names include: pallino, jack, pill, object ball, boccino. The pallina is smaller and a different color than the bocce balls so it is visibly distinct from both teams' balls. Bocce CPK welcomes leaners during play, which means to touch the pallina with your teams' bocce ball for an extra point for accuracy.

How do you score points in bocce?

You get the bocce ball closer to the pallina than your opponents closest ball. For example, if you get 2 bocce balls closer to the pallina then your opponent closest ball, you then score 2 points.

When throwing the pallina to start the game, what part of the court should it cross?

The pallina should always cross the halfway line when starting a frame. If it does not cross then it should be thrown again by the same team, or given to the opposite team to throw.

Where does the word "bocce" come from?

Bocce comes from the Italian word boccia, which is plural, means "to bowl". However, the singular form used in Italy, is bocce.
