Team name that incorporates a witty innuendo or pun, preferably with the word “ball” in there? If so, then you’re probably at Logan Circle on a Thursday night.

The Stonewall Bocce League, now in its 10th season, plays at the circle on Thursday nights. The bocce league is part of the Stonewall Sports League, which since its founding in 2010 has grown to have leagues in 10 different cities. In addition to bocce, in DC, Stonewall Sports offers billiards, darts, dodgeball, and kickball.
