Bocce is an Italian game. The basic principle of the sport is to roll a bocce ball closest to the target ball, which is called a pallina. Bocce as a Special Olympics sport provides people with special needs the opportunity to have social contact, develop physically, and gain self-confidence. Next to soccer and golf, bocce is the third most participated sport in the world.
