Bocce Federation Victoria (BFV) president David Marks officially welcomes Deer Park Bocce Club as an affiliated Bocce Club.
The Deer Park Bocce Club in Cannington Drive, Albion has a strong cultural history, and one that the BFV is very excited to establish a new connection with. The club has two indoor courts and four outdoor courts.
Recently, the club was fortunate to have the two indoor courts facility updated, ready for social competitions and community focused events.
With thanks to the efforts of Brimbank City Council, Deer Park Bocce club and Sports, Recreation Victoria.
“I am excited to be a part of the discussions in the early days of the planning, and to now see this completed is a major milestone,” Mr Marks said.
Mr Marks also congratulated the council team and the club.
Mr Marks went onto say: “The way the club plays bocce is different to what we have seen but feel, we can bring much to the club with a new social club league across Melbourne, including clubs like Altona, Sunshine, Veneto and, of course, Deer Park Bocce Club”.
Bocce Victoria is working with Deer Park Bocce Club and the Brimbank council as we set a date for a ‘come and try’ day at the club. This will enable BFV to showcase the game and the new format to Deer Park Club and the people who attend. We will advise when this event will be on.
Mr Marks said that affiliating with clubs like Deer Park Bocce Club is a critical part of the sports expansion, not just with the traditional game, but social fun events similar to what is happening with great success by Sonya Vello at the Veneto Club in Bullen.
While at the Deer Park Bocce Club, Mr Marks met with Bircan Houssein, the sports and recreation officer at Brimbank City Council, to discuss the opportunities with schools in the area and will be forging a plan with the council and Deer Park Bocce Club to set up options for the club with assistance from BFV.
