Club eyes return of World Series


The Toccolana Club, 1412 E. Dominick St., is in the preliminary stages of looking into hosting the World Series of Bocce in 2021. While the size and scope of the event is yet to be determined, it would be held in full compliance with all local and state COVID-19 guidelines still in place at the time, said club officer Joseph Mellace.

Mellace said they are hoping to host the event from Thursday through Sunday, July 15-18.

“Plans are still developing — we started the process,” Mellace said. “And we’re putting together a safety plan to submit to city, county and state. We’re in the process of updating our website now, so all the information about the event, as well as photos from past events, will be posted.”

City officials declined to comment until more details about the event, as well as a detailed safety plan, were available.

More information, such as how to enter a team or how to sponsor the event, will be listed on the Toccolana Club website at, or by calling 315-339-3609 when such details are available.
