The Rotary Club of Morgan Hill teamed up with the City of Morgan Hill and Home Instead Senior Care and co-sponsored a Bocce Ball Tournament on Oct. 11 on the bocce ball courts that were built with financial support from the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill . The tournament was part of Morgan Hill's first annual Healthy Aging Week Event and held at the Centennial Recreation Center.
The event was organized by Ken Tak, a Rotarian and owner of the Morgan Hill Home Instead Senior Care franchise. Femi Adenekan, a visiting Rotarian from Gbagada, Nigeria served as the line judge while Morgan Hill Rotarian Beth Adames acted as the official score keeper. A four-person team appropriately named"The Ringers" came in first place with "The Mamas and A Papa" coming in as the event's second place finishers.
According to Tak, "Some of our more active seniors have rediscovered the game of bocce ball and all were eager for the next event! The tournament definitely rekindled interest in the bocce ball court and we should see more people utilizing the court with the cooler weather coming in. All in all, it was a lot of fun, I got to know some great people and I can guarantee our next event will be twice as big!"
