Ital-Canadian Seniors Centre

The Ital-Canadian Seniors Association was formed in 1986 to provide senior citizens with a drop-in centre where they can socialize with their peers and get involved in recreational activities and hobbies as well as help members in distress.

The ITAL-CANADIAN SENIORS DROP-IN CENTRE, located at 9111-110 Avenue in Edmonton, Alberta consists of a large hall for festivities, rented offices and an accommodating recreation area. The Centre is open to members and non-members alike from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. In the recreation area, tables for card games are set up and three bocce courts are available for use.

Bocce is a traditional Italian game resembling lawn bowling with some variations. Whereas lawn bowling is played on grass, bocce is played on a smooth packed surface composed of clay and fine sand. There are strict rules governing the game of bocce and these rules are adhered to during the scheduled tournaments that take place in the winter months. When playing for past-time, however, the rules are somewhat relaxed and the emphasis is on enjoying oneself in the company of friends. There is a cost of $1.00 per player per game and a minimum of four people per lane are recommended to make the game interesting. Flat shoes must be worn by the bocce players so as not to cause depressions on the playing surface which will affect the path of the thrown bocce. An experienced and knowledgeable bocce player is available, at no cost, to acquaint new players with the rules of the game and the point marking system.

The bar offers various refreshments during hours of operation. Our facility is licenced to serve liquor but a multitude of soft drinks-both Canadian and Italian- are available, as are different coffees such as cappuccinos, caffè lattes, espressos, etc. The prices of these vary depending on one=s choice of beverage. There are also pastries available at the cost of $1.25 each.
