FREE SHIPPING on all bocce sets in the continental USA. Discounted to all countries.
For single sets the shipping is by US Postal Service Priority Mail. So we need your PO Box or your physical address to get the product too you. Priority Mail typically takes 2-3 Days to most locations in the Continental USA and Alaska, Hawaii.
Note: Due to Covid pandemic. The delays mentioned in the links apply to all carriers. Please be patient.
Of course we cannot be held responsible for those delays, or be expected to compensate if an order arrives late.
We have the option to change the shipping on Multi set orders to UPS, but we still pay the shipping.
Returns can be shipped within 30 days if product is in its original unused condition with all tags still attached. For lighted sets none of the battery tabs are pulled.
If you are shipping to Canada UPS is the lowest cost and we have discounted the rate you will see at checkout. But UPS does charge brokerage fees, the Canadian taxes and the import duty. To avoid the brokerage fees either ship to a ship location on the US side of the border ( free for bocce sets ) and then pickup to take back across or follow the steps in this link to avoid paying the UPS broker fees.
Or ship by the Postal Service, yes higher ship cost as its being handled by the US and then the Canadian Post. But we hear over and over that overall the cost is the cheapest with Postal delivery.
Only official size 107mm Lithium battery bocce set available in the world.
Our best set ever. Designed and proven in 2019 RELEASED March 2020
SPECIAL Limited time price. Not sold on Amazon or anywhere else. **(PATENTED by Playaboule)**
Patent US 20130029794 A1
The difference with this set compared to our other lighted bocce sets is that the new V5 plug has replaceable Li-ion batteries. The other sets are Alkaline batteries. All other functions are the same. So the run time is up to an AMAZING 45 plus hours for the Li-ion plugs!! All our other sets have a long run time of up to 15 hours.
So if you want the ultimate run time, this set is for you.
The plugs are NOT interchangeable with the other sets. We had to make the plug cavity and plug bigger to fit the Li-ion batteries. See pics to the left or on Mobile above.
The image above shows the Version numbers of the plugs of our product and the years they were introduced. The balls themselves are still made of the same material and are identical to when we first introduced the product all those years ago. Each version of plugs replaced the versions before. V3 onward are patented.
To give the longest life battery run time we have to use a RED LED in the WHITE target ball. So on this set only, the target ball glows pinkish red and being less than half the size, is easily distinguishable from the big Red balls. It also has 2 larger size Alkaline LR44 batteries where the regular white ball with white LED has 3 smaller batteries. Simple reason is RED LED’s have a much lower power draw and voltage requirement than a white LED so don’t drain as fast.
ONLY PLAYABOULE MAKES FULL SIZE LIGHTED BOCCE BALLS.
This set weighs almost 12 lbs. So these are NOT cheap light weight balls. They can be crashed together hard without fear of breaking a ball or the electronics.
Patent # US20130029794 A1 added all these features exclusive to Playaboule.
Recessed push button external switch. So it won't bump off when the ball hits the ground
Plug stays in the ball except to change the batteries

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.
We designed these balls to be pretty close to a solid sphere. But due the plug in the side of course the balls there is weight on one side so of course they can't roll in a straight line on a hard surface. Not designed to be a replacement for a competition set used on a smooth floor or hard packed bocce court. Although they are but with that understood condition. Folks that do play on those surfaces live them as that rolling on a bias, adds to the fun of the game. But these were designed to be a great recreational set and perfect for evening play! At the beach on hard packed sand, camping on slightly rough terrain, back yards on grass etc. When the sun goes down don't stop playing, START playing with this glo bocce ball set. These balls weigh approx 1.25 lbs 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.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 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.
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 to occur due to manufacturing/assembly, they will be evident, certainly within 90 days. Every plug is tested 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
Depending on usage, batteries can last an incredible 45 hours or more of typical playing times.
