Granby, CT Bocce & Horseshoes


Photos courtesy of Russell Bledsoe. "Thought you might find this interesting, we built these courts (bocce & horseshoe) a couple of years ago when we first moved into the house. I'll look around for original images of the woods where this is now built, needless to say it was quite overgrown and since the house we live in was built back in the mid 1700's this area was what they must have used as a dumping ground. We pulled everything from old farm tools to parts from turn of the century vehicles, personally I think this is much better use of the space."


We originally surfaced the bocce court with stone dust over compacted ¾" stone, this worked alright ,but was never a great surface, this year we went with an 1" cover of Har-Tru and what a difference, it has changed the entire game for us, and are very pleased with the results.
The court itself is 90' x 11' (just couldn't make it any wider) & fully lit for night games, we also added the benches this year.
Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the great reads on your site, it's what spurred me on to take it to the next level.
Cheers
Russell
