The set sold on this page is the Official Tournament size for bocce ball sets 107mm (4.2 inches dia) Approximately the same size as a Softball.


This set includes ALL of the following.

  • Set of 8 External Switch Glo lighted bocce balls. Press once for Flashing press again for Static Glo, press once more to turn off.

  • 2 Glow Green, 2 Glow Blue, 2 Glow Red, 2 Glow Yellow

  • 1 50mm (2 inch dia) Glow White jack (pallina). Press once for Flashing press again for Static Glo, press once more to turn off.

  • Deluxe Nylon carry case with webbing handles, upgraded heavy duty zipper. Extra compartments under lid and on the outside of the bag.

  • 2 sets of batteries ( 1 is pre-installed for testing purposes)

  • Instructions and rules of play

  • Measuring string and Tape measure


The balls are made of a high quality, durable hard plastic material, with the Playaboule logo molded in.  Because the balls are translucent the LED light can shine through making the balls flash and glow in the dark. They can be easily seen in the dark from more than 100ft away. Simply press the recessed button to turn the light on/off to activate in flash mode or press again for non flash. 

The balls have a 1 year warranty against breakage or cracking. Not covered of course is hitting something harder and than the ball is, like cement, rocks, etc, even then they usually just bounce off. The plugs have a 90 day warranty. The reason for this is that if any problems are going occur due to manufacturing/assembly, they will be evident, certainly within 90 days. Because the batteries are pre-installed to test every plug before packing, issues with the plug are rare. Long term the only issues we hear of are circuit board/battery corrosion, most often because the set is stored with the batteries left in for long periods of storage, damp with plugs not tight, foreign material, sand, water etc entering the plug enclosure because the plugs are not screwed properly creating a seal.

Spare or replacement plugs and batteries are available here. CLICK

Note: Replaceable Alkaline batteries are pre-installed and are included for testing purposes. Pull the tab out to activate the first time. A fresh set is also included. Depending on usage, batteries can last 15 hours or more of typical playing times.

We designed these balls to be as close to a solid sphere as possible. There is a small air pocket/s left inside after molding. A threaded a hole is molded in the side for the LED plug. Being as close to solid as possible, these balls are almost unbreakable.!!! You can crash the balls together without fear of damaging the balls or the LED components.

Great recreational set and perfect for evening play! At the beach, camping, back yard, etc. When the sun goes down don't stop playing, START playing with this glo bocce ball set. These balls weigh approx 600 gms each, about 2/3rds the weight of a competition bocce ball. This is plenty of heft even for the most aggressive player and has the extra advantage that the balls will not drop dead in very soft sand like a regular bocce ball does.

Cross Reference for batteries (3 for each ball and 3 for the target ball): LR54 Duracell D189A, Rayovac 189-1, Panasonic LR1130 ANSI/NEDA 1168A, Sony 189, Varta V10GA, GP89A, Vinnic L1131, Maxell LR1130

7/5/2011 3:10:51 AM I love this set and my whole family loves this set. The balls light up completely and are so beautiful. Also I use the balls for decorative lights on my outdoor tables. I would recommend buying extra Glo Ball Set of Plugs Flash/Non-V3 so nothing will stop the play. The bocce balls seem very durable and very good quality.

Hey LED Bocce, I have to say, my friends, and myself LOVE your LED Bocce Balls. I purchased my LED bocce ball kit about a year ago, and we have been playing the $%&* out of them. However my friends, and I don't really play the court style of Bocce, We are all about "Extreme Bocce". We play In Aspen C.O. which has some crazy terrain, and weather! We have played in 4 feet of fresh Powder on the top of Buttermilk Mtn (Which was the coolest way to play..Cold, but very fun so dress warm! We would toss the white Pallina into the deep powder, and the Palline would sink into the snow about 1-2' making the snow glow!!! Then We would toss the colored Bocce into the snow as well, and that ball would sink up to 4' deep ALSO making the Snow Glow all the way to the surface of the Snow! However when it came time to see who won, we would have to dig carefully to the bocce balls to see the winner!! It was a huge Hit with the Aspen Skiing Comp! PS: make sure to have your favorite beverage in hand.. its a Must to keep warm!!!) Then we played in a wild park with rocks, trees, grass, and small water run offs.. in the middle of a thunder storm. the rain was coming down so hard that the grass, and the water run offs where more like ponds, and rivers! however that didn't stop us from playing. The entire set of LED Bocce Balls where completely underwater for about 2hrs of intense play! lol with out an issue of water damage, all the balls, and all of the LEDS worked perfectly then, and after that. Then i took the kit to Cape Cod MA to play under a full moon out on a sand bar in the Ocean, and i mean IN the ocean ahha now that was cool because the small waves would move the white Pallina all over the sand barr, so we had to play "Speed rounds" to try and keep up with the pallina that was being tossed back in forth in the small surf lol but again we had no problem with the entire set of LED Bocce Balls. Then we took the Set to A huge open field with tall grass, which we chuck the white pallina 30-60' out into the grass where Non of us could see the Pallina at all. We called this "Blind Bocce" lol which was really fun because no one knew who was closest to the Pallina until the last toss! lol Again the entire set of bocce balls where completely FINE, and we where literally chucking the bocce balls 30'-60' with ever thing we had in are arms! It was super fun! Then I took my set of LED bocce balls on my three week road trip vacation from Moab UT, Los Vegas, San Deigo, Ocean Side, Up High way 1, to San Fran, over to Lake Tahoe, Then to Salt Lake. So we started in Moab UT which is a very harsh place to play, because the sand stone rock damages the bocce balls, and i cracked the pallina, and the plug in half breaking it completely... =( Such a Sad Day! However.. the game Lived on, because i used a Glow stick! but again wasn't the same! So the reason i wanted to send this email is to say, I &$#%ing love your product so much that I will be Buying all new Plugs, and a pallina for my first Bocce Ball Kit! And because i love this kit so much i am also going to buy the NEW V3-DLX!! Thank you so much for the hrs of entertainment for my friends and family!

10/15/2012 8:14:51 PM Best bocce ball set out there. Don't hesitate on getting this full blown (V3) version. It's a hit at every party (kids and adults) that I've taken it to. Definitely has a wow factor during night-time play. I had a small issue with one of the lights and customer service replaced it free of charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fun starts when the sun goes down!, December 26, 2011 By J Cox (Raleigh, NC United States) - A close friend of mine brought these out at a housewarming cookout 2 years ago just trying to keep his guests entertained. It has now become a summer tradition Ultimate Bocce Tournament at his house every summer. This year for Christmas, I recieved these as a gift and can't wait to start my own Bocce Summer Tournament!! His set is the older version with the screw-in plugs. I have this set and I have to say the push-button lights are a great addition. With his set, some would blink, some stayed lit, sometimes they'd go out or flash when thrown, they were very inconsistent. This new set is much more reliable. The weight is perfect and they are very very durable. Its about 30 degrees outside now, and I cant wait until it warms up this spring!! Trust me when I say that these will be the hit at the party and will be HOURS of fun after the sun goes down. The only downside is trying to figure out a way to get your guests to leave!!

I will answer all of your questions this quickly: Better than imagined! Sterdy solid construction, nice heavy weight, amazing glow which is totally easy to activate solid or blinking, awesome tote, then the cherry on top...shipped from Washington to GA insured, in two days, and with tracking info :) $80 seemed a bit steep when ordering but the product stood up to the price the very first play!

Will Lafond. Absolutely one of the greatest yard games ever. Light up bocce is a hoot! The sets are tough and take a lot of abuse. The company is fast with S&H and free. Buy a set and have some late night fun!!!

We haven't played yet, but the quality is evident in this product! I bought a bocce set on amazon that was terrible quality for Fathers Day, after sending that back I researched and found this company, I called and actually had the owner of the company answer the phone and spend 10-15 minutes answering all my questions! I will update after the rain stops and we are able to use them for the first time, but for now I am really excited with the product I received within 2 days! Thanks so much!

We play bocci all the time at my friends house. We weren't happy when it go dark and we couldn't play anymore. I purchased a set in March 2014, we have played several times and we LOVE it. This is the best invention ever. The balls are bright, you can see them with no problems. I can't tell you enough how cool this game is at night. Thank you for the best summer game ever.

Our family loved playing with these so much- the weight and feel is perfect, the fact that they glow just makes them magical. This summer is going to be The Summer of Bocce!!

Lightning fast shipping. Placed order Friday afternoon, delivered Monday! Made our Christmas SPECIAL - everyone loved them. 3 nights of play; those too old or timid for the cold, dark conditions were treated to a magical lightshow of dancing thru the air glowing globes. Excellent quality. Thank you!

I coach Bocce for Special Olympics in California. I bought your Playaboule V3 Lighted Bocce Ball Set Deluxe Glow (LED) 107 MM for my son's birthday gift and he absolutely loved it! I bought extra sets and gave them as gifts to other family members who love them too! We just returned from visiting family in Virginia and we played night bocce a lot! If you have more than 4 players try having 2 people use the same color ball(say green)on a team. One would have their ball blink and the other have their ball stay on. Then you know who threw what ball. It's so much FUN playing when it's dark! Cars driving by slowed down to check out what we were doing. We'll take our set to the beach next and I know people will ask where we bought such awesome bocce balls! Who knows, maybe someone will want to buy my last extra set?!

My glow in the dark bocce set is AWESOME. I ordered two. One was a wedding present, and was a huge hit at the wedding later that night (outside wedding). I kept one set for myself and have had so much fun with it on a camping trip, rafting trip, and just playing in the back yard. Moving forward, I think this will be my go-to present for friends and family. Thanks again.

Amazing product!!! A must have for any family., September 29, 2011 By Blake Sanderson (Pasadena, Ca United States) This review is from: Playaboule NEW DESIGN Deluxe Glo 107mm Lighted Bocce Ball Set (Misc.) This is the best outdoor recreation game I've played in years. I was looking for a lawn bowling set and came across these; my attention was caught because of the glow in the dark quality. The balls all glow fantastically, each ball is powered with three small watch batteries. The set comes with tape measure and two sets of batteries. The balls are extremely durable and designed with excellent colors. My friends and family can't seem to get enough of the Playaboules. Its an excellent way to bring people out of the house and enjoying the evening. I hope you try these out and enjoy them as much as I have.

We will be using the V3 set at our upcoming 35th Annual Italian Fest (Festa Italiana) here in Milwaukee this July 19th thru the 22nd. The debut for our Bocce Court Committee was received with RAVE REVIEWS last Thursday evening. All agree this will be a GREAT addition to an already popular gathering area at the festival. I personally was more impressed with the quality of the V3 than I expected. Extremely well designed and "BRIGHT". I can't imagine any bocce player being disappointed in this set. So if you happen to be in Milwaukee this July 19 to 22 Please join us for "BOCCE UNDER THE STARS'. Should be a fun prelude to our evening ending fireworks display. And NO I'm not on commission with Playaboule; Just a satisfied customer.

PAJAMADIN 3/10/2011 2:18:45 PM i am upgrading to the larger and new model set several years after receiving and loving the original version. it's so exciting to see all the improvements! this company has great innovation, listening, customer service, and products. i have had wonderful experiences with people by having these glowing orbs to play with in all kinds of situations. the smaller ones are light enough to juggle with, and the larger ones are great for adult play! excellent all around!

Response from Playaboule. We take all reviews very seriously. So the owner and designer of the product called the customer personally. 1) the sets were purchased in May 2011 so this is the 3rd year/season of use. 2) the customer said that it was only this year that some issues with some plugs were found. 3) the batteries were never removed from the plugs during their long winter storage. He was aware that any battery driven product that it is standard practice to remove the batteries if storing. The instructions included also state this. 4) he also that later in their playing season there is dew on the ground and that the balls were wiped before being put away, but if they or the bag also sitting in the dew were truly dry, did not know. 5) this a set of balls that are now 3 years old and as he agreed the instructions on storage were not followed. 6)Even so to replace a plug without batteries is $1.78 each. ( it only makes sense to sell them with batteries ) 7) The upshot is that if the instructions are followed there are rare problems with the plugs. But if the user does not want to follow those instructions they still have the very low cost option of replacing the plugs only. As is the case here were only some of them are behaving erratically. The rest in the sets we sell at such low cost, can be kept as spares. 3 star rating and basic instructions not followed. Fair?? We and our extended family liked them some much, we've bought 3 sets. But that was two years ago and now the lights on all three sets are failing. Some won't work even with new batteries installed, a few won't shut off and most others with problems seem to have a loose circuit because they'll shut themselves off during play. Customer support (nice/pleasant) reinforced the 90 day warranty period. And although we've seen no signs of battery corrosion visible, customer support seemed to think there could have been and that we just couldn't see it. It was fun for the less than dozen we used ours, not sure if we'll buy the replacement lights for a dozen more times. Since there are only 5 star reviews here, I don't expect this one will show here. Maybe later on I'll post it on Amazon's site were potential buyers there can read it.
