Best Bocce Courts

Wickliffe Italian-American Club

The bocce leaguers of Little Italy pursue their pleasures on storied but somewhat dog-eared surfaces. But the lucky folks in the Wickliffe Italian-American Club execute their puntata and raffia deliveries on half a dozen top-flight courts. These crushed-limestone beauties recently hosted the vaunted Laketran Cleveland Challenge Cup, but they're available to anyone who rents the club's facilities for special events. Like maybe a bocce tournament of your own.
