Following modified United States Bocce Federation Open Rules, teams comprised of four members will battle it out during qualifying rounds as they compete for first place. An exhibition with world-class players will be Saturday, Sept. 21, and the championship rounds for the 16 finalists will be held Sunday, Sept. 22, with approximately $27,000 in prize monies at stake.

"We're looking forward to this event as a chance to bring bocce aficionados from around the Chicagoland area, Minneapolis and the country together for this weekend-long event," Pinstripes' founder Dale Schwartz said in a news release. "From the bocce tournament to the wine dinner kickoff event, there is something for players and spectators alike at our 40,000-square-foot venue."

Each match will be played in round robin style following an 11-point game structure.

Team entries must be submitted by Aug. 21. The cost to register is $400 per team, which includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday and/or Sunday, depending on location of qualifying rounds.
