It’s time to start thinking about next year. Registration will be held between Jan. 28th and Mar. 11th.

This year, in order to encourage timely waiver signatures, we’re making them a requirement for registration. This means, your registration will not be complete until all waivers on your team have been signed. If you include email addresses for players, waiver emails will get sent to them automatically. Though, sometimes they don't make it to inboxes. Capos can get waiver links from their online team page and send them to their players directly.

2022 Playoffs


We’ve made it to the end of the regular season. I hope everyone had a good time. Time for the Playoffs!

The Playoffs are a single elimination tournament. The top four teams from each division, plus four wildcard teams, will advance to the Playoffs. The bracket, plus information about seeds, can be viewed online at:

Here is the schedule:

  • Round 1: Sept. 6 - 9
  • Round 2: Sept. 12 - 13
  • Round 3: Sept. 14 - 15
  • Round 4: Sept. 16
  • Championships: Sept. 17

All matches are at 6pm, except for the Championship, which is at 4pm.

Remember, the Playoffs are a unique schedule. You won’t necessarily be playing on your regularly scheduled night. And if you do well, you’ll be playing multiple nights in the same week. A match for third place will be held at the same time as the Championship match.

Court Material

As mentioned previously, we have been evaluating what to do with the new material on courts 3 and 4. We didn’t find an acceptable solution to changing them mid-season. So, we’re going to wait until after the Playoffs to address it in the off season. For now, the playoff schedule has been optimized to use those two courts as little as possible, including not using them at all past Round 2.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Don’t forget to RSVP to the End of Season Party!

Benicia Bocce League 2022 - Division Placements

Please take a look at your team’s schedule, and use the rescheduling process to handle any matches that don’t work for your team. Take special note of the handful of matches that aren’t scheduled on your normal day of the week.

The Capo Meeting is scheduled for April 2nd at 10am. We’re going to hold the Capo Meeting virtually again this year. But, instead of simply using a one way livestream, we’re going to use a Zoom meeting so that folks can join and ask questions live. I’ll be sending information to capos shortly.

As usual, let us know if you have any questions,

2022 Registration


It’s time again. Registration opens in just a few weeks. This year we should be able to return to our normal format, doing away with the COVID precautions we had in place at the beginning of our 2021 season.

Registration will be open from Sat. Feb. 5th at noon, through Sat. Mar. 5th at noon. As usual, registration will be done here online at Be sure you have an account, know your password, and have your roster figured out when registration opens. If you are looking for a team to join, or more players for your own team, head over to the BBL - Find a Team Facebook group.

We’ll send out more information about key dates and events in the near future.

One note about registration priority: As you likely recall, in 2021, in order to not pressure teams to play when they were uncomfortable, the League let teams skip the season without losing priority. So this year, first priority will go to teams who played (way back!) in 2019. Beyond that, registration priority will work as normal.

We’re happy to get rolling again this year.
