The Vigilucci’s Beach Bocce World Championship will take place at Dog Beach in Del Mar on July 14, although dogs are encouraged to be left at home. The tournament will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad (BGCC). There will be four divisions — Men’s Open Division, a Men’s Intermediate Division, a Women’s Division, and a Mixed Division — each with approximately 100 teams.

Last year, 420 teams played 1,002 games on 83 courts and raised more than $100,000 for the BGCC.

While the event is currently sold out, registrations for Sponsor and VIP teams are still available. Those interested in being placed on the wait list for regular registration can email with their name, phone number, and division requested.
