H20 is Just a Few Days Away


We’re just a few days away from Higgyball, so stretch those joints and ready those coozies. Here are just a few reminders to ensure you have a good Higgyball experience:

  • BE ON TIME! Reminder for the address: 7650 King Rd. Oxford, OH 45056. The event starts at 11:00am, so be there before then, especially if you’re on a team. Speaking of teams, take a look at the rules. Newcomers should familiarize themselves with how we run things. As usual, we’ll run everything through a computer on the deck, so you can see field assignments and standings on the big screen. Teams should check in at the deck computer when you arrive (this is especially important because we need all teams present to begin the tournament). If you’re ridiculously late, we’ll give you a loss for your first round match-up. If you know you will be late, please let someone know long before the start of the event.
  • If you’ve signed up and your plans have changed regarding Higgyball, please let me know, and you’ll get your money back. If someone bows out the day of the event, we’ll take any replacements from the Wait List that are at Higgyball to fill the spot. If you would like to play and have yet to sign up, click here for the Wait List or add yourself to the Free Agent list.
  • If you pledged your balls to Higgyball, please bring your bocce sets with you, and check in with a council member for field assignment. We’ll do our best to make sure you leave with the same balls you arrived with.
  • The weather is looking a bit iffy at the moment, but we might get lucky! Reminder: The rain backup date is Sunday, May 26, 2024. Any teams that cannot make that date will get a refund.
  • No matter which day the event is held, please volunteer to help with the cleanup process. Our hosts are gracious to have us, but often are left with a big mess. Coordinate amongst yourselves and please offer to assist, either in the evening after the tournament or the following day.
  • Items to bring: water, sunscreen, bocce set(s), water, food items to share, lawn chairs, water, bug spray, sunglasses, tape measure, rain gear, swim suit and towel, and water.
  • Ice! It’s so important, it needs its own section. Please bring a large bag or two of ice to throw in the giant communal beverage tubs.
  • The parking location may have to be decided on the day of the tournament, depending on the amount of rain we get between now and then. We’ll have people directing everyone to the right place.
  • We have a few neat surprises for Year 20 at the event, so stay tuned.
  • Fedora Taxi is available to hire to get back home if needed. Their rates are reasonable. (513) 255-9999
  • Lastly, check out the Higgyball Dry Goods store for cool swag. Do it!
