resin court installation


Resin Court Installation at
the IAC, Stockton, CA

Photos courtesy of Richard Heisler. These great shots show what’s involved in installing the polyurethane resin courts like the ones at Michigan’s Palazzo di Bocce and California’s Campo di Bocce. Aurelio Colleone is the master builder (in the gold shirt) pictured with some of the crew who did the installation at the Italian Athletic Club in Stockton, California.

1According to Heisler “Asphalt is barrowed in. Screed slides on two pieces of square steel tubing. Laser level was used to shim up steel tubes.” {For more info on this process, go to Back Issues and click on the link for The Joy of Bocce Weekly Volume IX – #32 – October18, 2010.}
