The schedule will be changing due to court closure ordered by Contra Costa Health Services. A new schedule will be published when the closure order is lifted.
The 2020 Bocce calendar is now available. The calendar lists key dates for the Clayton Bocce League and the Ipsen Family Bocce Park, including the 2020 Spring, Summer and Fall League seasons.

The calendar may be viewed here.

With the summer season starting in August, we anticipate the usual questions about canceling play due to excessive heat, high winds, or poor air quality. To provide some structure for decisions on when to cancel matches, the bocce committee is adopting the following guidelines. These are guidelines; we may deviate from them if conditions warrant.

With several planned additions to the bocce website, league capos are being issued login accounts on ClaytonBocce.org. Whether for the upcoming online team signups or the planned online scoring system, it is necessary to secure and control access to functions that modify information on the website.
Website access control systems can be quite complicated: userids, passwords, secret questions, password resets, two-factor authentication and more. For the ClaytonBocce.org website we decided not to include another access control system; instead we will use well known existing systems. If you are issued a ClaytonBocce.org account, you will need to have a Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account, and you will login using your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft userid and password. We did this for two reasons:
The process for logging in to ClaytonBocce.org:
We anticipate that most bocce league members will have a Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account. If you do not have one you will need to create one. The alternative would be for the bocce website to have its own userids and passwords, but then you would have to create one of those, so what's to be gained?
Google and Microsoft accounts are simpler than Facebook, so if you just need an account to access the bocce website, we suggest either of these.
