Since 2015 Merchantville Country Club members have enjoyed an opportunity to participate in a sport that dates back to the Roman Empire - bocce. This year's 2023 Bocce Champions include one of the group's original founders, Larry Fanelle, as well as: Mike Banner, Gus Sarno, AJ Sarno, Ron Manos, Ken Hanners and Bob Deacon. This sport, which has gained a lot of popularity in the past ten years,
experienced a quick growth spurt at the club requiring expanding the teams and the season. That’s just how they roll. Enjoy some past pictures from the Courier-Post.
