How to Play Bocce
The game starts with two teams tossing a coin.

The winner of the toss bowls the jack (a small white ball) into 
the 5 metre rectangle and plays the first bowl.  

The opposition then attempts to place their first bowl even closer to the jack.

Throughout the game the bowl (ball) closest to the jack has the advantage (holds the point) and their opponents are committed to then continue until they either gain the advantage (hold point) or have used all the bowls available to them.

When both teams, (or all players) have played all their bowls, the score is taken. The team with the bowl closest to the jack has the advantage, scoring one point for each of its bowls nearer to the jack than the nearest opposition bowl.

The game alternates end to end until 6 to 8 ends have been played.

The team who has scored the most points is the winner.
