I thought I’d start with my first post by listing the manufacturers of competition bocce balls in Italy.
Perfetta is the most well known and arguably the most respected manufacturer in Italy. they have been the official supplier to the biggest bocce tournament in the world the World Bocce Championships.
Super Martel is another good manufacturer and happens to be just a few miles away from Perfetta in the same small town East of Bologna and south of Venice.
iXsport – Salf is also based in Berra close to Perfetta and Super Martel (Update 12 Feb 2010: Apparently Salf is no longer in business )
Unibloc makes the brass balls for the Volo style of bocce play
Cast is no longer in the business of making bocce balls. Apparently they are focusing on their core products pipe valves and such.
Londero makes a compressed wood bocce ball and a plastic set. Both are great for beach or for kids to play with.
