The recreational use of an Italian Bocce Ball Court provides an excellent way to spend afternoons and evenings having backyard fun with family and friends. For those players who in particular use or want to have large to full size 13 x 91-foot courts with a hard and very fast playing surface.
Traditionally Bocce Ball courts are covered with a 2 to 3-inch layer of crushed oyster flour spread that has been blended with decomposed granite in a very fine 1/4" minus screen size. In regions with high spring and summer rainfall, it is advisable to use a greater percentage of oyster flour and washed concrete sand for improved drainage and ease of maintenance.
After the installation of the playing surface has been done a layer of finely crushed oyster shell flour is often applied. We supply all of these materials for court installations and for seasonal maintenance.
The role that oyster flour plays in bocce court surface mixtures is to keep the decomposed granite from binding together becoming extremely hard and unworkable for grooming. The oyster flour flakes keep the decomposed granite from completely binding together. Through the normal course of play; ruts, troughs, and material displacement takes place. Our decomposed granite oyster flour blend is in traditional Italian bocce ball court surface formula. When groomed out it makes a smooth solid surface to play on. When play is completed it makes for an easy surface to quickly renovate.
We offer several different surface material options, with and without oyster flour. Our Wet Climate or Rain Country Blend has a higher percentage of oyster flour and washed concrete sand for increased drainage.
We are also able to ship all of the other materials needed for installation and maintenance to you.
