Many potential homebuyers take the time to check out the community in which they are looking to purchase a house. They may ask existing residents about the HOA, spend time in the community and meet some of the neighbors. When residents have positive feelings toward an HOA or neighborhood, homes or condos become more attractive to individuals in the market to buy or rent. Events make it easier to meet their neighbors and provide the opportunity to develop a strong sense of community.
Bocce is a fantastic way to spend quality time with friends and neighbors. It is fun to play, and it encourages healthy social interaction and friendly competition. Bocce also comes with many healthful perks. It helps to relieve stress and is not a physically demanding sport. It aids in the kind of light activity which allows seniors to maintain independence and mobility as they age. The friendly competition also helps us to focus while we learn how to aim and toss a bocce ball.
East Setauket Manors HOA offers a multi-player bocce ball court. It encourages friendships and a sense of being. Bocce contributes to our quality of life and health. They invite all their residents to learn more about the new favorite spot and join the fun on the courts.
Bocce Ball Tips And Tricks
Interested in utilizing bocce ball courts but don’t know how to play? We have you covered!
Get a Grip
The right grip is the key to making a good toss in the game of bocce ball. Before releasing the ball, spread your fingers out evenly around the ball to support its weight, and make sure to not apply any pressure with your thumb. Your thumb should only be used to guide the direction of the ball.
Activities And Events For Residents
A bonded neighborhood is a plus for any community and potential home buyers. Whether the majority of the community owns or rents an apartment or a house, unity within these types of communities is appealing. This makes improvements and maintenance for common areas like recreation centers, parks, and pools critical for HOAs. HOA managers can consider opportunities to develop a close-knit neighborhood, such as providing community events and activities.
Creating opportunities for an enjoyable experience within a community doesn’t need to be complicated. Following are some simple resident and community development ideas:
Establish Community Events – Don’t underestimate the value of an active HOA with a friendly community. Many potential homebuyers or future tenants desire to live in a neighborhood with an HOA where there are planned activities and events to socialize and have fun. Ideas include:
- Pool parties
- Shuffleboard tournaments
- Wine tastings
- Dance lessons
- Yoga and Tai Chi classes
Outdoor shuffleboard is played on an outdoor court that is 52 feet long. Discs that are 6 inches in diameter and weigh about 1 lb. are slid down the court into scoring areas. Each end of the court has a scoring area in the shape of a triangle. The tip of the triangle is worth 10 points, the next two zones are worth eight points, and the farthest zones are worth seven points. The first team to 75 points wins.
Mateflex shuffleboard courts are engineered to be the flattest, tightest fitting, and most rigid court tile on the market, designed to remain flat throughout the entire surface of the court. In addition, the unique surface profile texture provides the perfect gliding surface for shuffleboard discs and offers consistent performance for competitive as well as recreational play.

East Setauket Manors HOA – Bocce Ball & Shuffleboard Sports Game Courts
We installed two bocce courts and two shuffleboards in East Setauket NY at East Setauket Manors HOA apartment complex. Gappsi built and installed two bocce courts side by side. Each Bocce Ball Sports Game Court was constructed using bocce grass and pressure treated lumbers for the walls along with a recycled concrete base. At the beginning of the courts and in between the courts we installed synthetic turf which blends in with the real grass; it is almost hard to tell them apart.
Gappsi uses very realistic synthetic turf with beautiful realistic colors and pile height. It’s also very dense. It’s 90 ounces per sqft of synthetic grass. Which also used to divide the two courts and in between the shuffleboards and the bocce courts. The shuffle courts were built with poured concrete slabs. We finished them very smoothly and swept them with white. We kept the color of the natural concrete color. The project came out very nicely. The clients are very happy and are making very good use of both shuffleboards and bocce courts. As I said it’s almost hard to tell the difference between synthetic turf and real grass they look very very similar.
