This afternoon I was invited by Enjoying Planned Retirement (EPR) to the bocce season at Norwood Park. Enjoying Planned Retirement is a vibrant club which consists of over 400 members and provides a wealth of activities for Maroondah’s senior citizens.
Bocce, originated in Italy and is similar to lawn bowls. EPR holds regular bocce tournaments and I had the pleasure of being a participant in the game. The game is played between teams consisting of two people and the winning team continues through the tournament to the grand final.
Bocce is just one of the many regular and entertaining activities organised by EPR, based at Norwood Park, along Warrandyte Road in Ringwood North.
