HEALTH BENEFITS 

Exercises the heart, improves concentration, motor control and reflexes and will give you a nice dose of endorphins. The fresh air and time spent outside while you play will also boost your immune system and energise you

 

HISTORY 

While the game isn't yet too popular in Australia (where we live), and doesn't that we know of have a name in English, it can be traced around the world from Brazil’s Frescobol, to Matkot in Israel and Racchettoni in Italy.

 

INSPIRATION 

Games and playful forms of movement hold a special place in society, improving health and creating more community.

 

WAYS TO PLAY 

Traditional - A duo bounces the ball to and fro, keeping the ball in the air for as long as they can. To do this one hits the ball to their partner's racquet, and waits for their partner to do the same, but remembering this doesn’t always go to plan so being ready to run a little.

Duos - Two or more duos record for how long the ball can be kept in the air to discover which duo plays the longest.

Fast - Two or more duos record how many hits are made over 3 minutes to discover which duo plays the fastest.

Turns - Three people take turns to play, the watching person judges why the ball fell to the ground and who was at fault and then replaces that person.
