Raljoball(Rah-LOW-ball). Noun. A hand-to-ball sport played between two players played similarly to volleyball, table tennis, and badminton.
The game is played in a 12 foot by 12 foot square divided in half by a 2 ft. net. On each side of the court there is a wall that a player can play off of, much like in squash or racquetball.
The ball used is small (approx. 5.5 inch diameter) with basketball type material. The scoring is based on a non-rally system. To get the serve back, the non-server must win a rally. A player serves in a service box, which sits outside of the regular boundaries. The ball may only bounce on either side once. Games are played up to 25, (win-by-two).
There are several other rules designed to make the game fair in any situation that may arise on the court.
Doug: Did you see that Damien crushed Andy in raljoball yesterday?
Jim: What's Raljoball?
Doug: Well I'll tell you. Raljoball is a fast-paced game in which players use their hands to rally a small ball back and forth across a court. The best is when you smash the ball into a players face. That's called a Wedge.
Jim: Where can I play?
