360ball

360ball is a racquet sport played in a circular court by two or four players. The main objective of the game is to use the racquet (which is a similar size and shape to a tennis racquet) to strike a rubber ball onto a concave disc that is located in the middle of the circular playing area. The playing area and equipment are portable, so the game can be quickly set up to play on various surfaces such as turf, concrete, sand, and dirt. 360ball is an aerobic-based team sport that promotes social interaction, quick reactions, and hand-eye coordination.
