With the sun shining, temperatures warming and social distancing guidelines being lifted, more people are heading out in groups across the South Hills and Mon Valley area.

Bocce Brings People Together In Baldwin

In North Baldwin, a group has been meeting each Tuesday to play bocce on the yard near St. Albert the Great Catholic Church.

“It’s fun,” said Mike Woshner. “It’s informal and everyone is invited to play.”

About a dozen people are coming out for the games and Woshner said more will be joining in the coming weeks.

“Come as you are,” Woshner said. “There are no formal teams. We do keep score but no special skills are required.”

Woshner said a horseshoes set was taken from the old St. Norbert Church and set up at the St. Albert campus. Many other activities take place in the large, spacious and flat St. Albert parking lot. It is a popular space for bike-riding, hopscotch, jogging and now bocce. The formal game of bocce is played on actual courts, Woshner notes, but lawn bocce is very popular across the country.

“We’re just happy that we can start gathering again,” Woshner said. “It’s great seeing people trying to get out and do more after being inside for most of the last year.”

With the summer months approaching, hopefully there will be more outdoor fun ahead.
