Can you toss a two-pound ball with one hand while holding a drink in the other? Congratulations—you’re qualified to play bocce. The Atlanta Bocce League is the group for people who want the camaraderie of being on a team without the hassle of physical exertion. Although drinking is optional, many of the host venues offer food and drink discounts for bocce participants (for example, $12 pitchers at the Nook on Piedmont Park). The league competes year-round at bars across the city and—so you can feel virtuously outdoorsy—in Piedmont Park. atlbocce.com
