Matkot - מטקות

ככה העולם רואה את המטקות מישראל.......
Matkot (Hebrew: מטקות‎) is a popular paddle ball game in Israel similar to beach tennis, often referred to as the country's national sport. The goal of the game is to hit a small rubber ball with a wooden racket as many times as possible without dropping it.

Player poised to hit the ball
Matkot is a non-competitive beach game in which two or more players hit a small ball back and forth using paddles. The sport is named after the racquet, the matka; the origin of this word is unclear.
The racquets are traditionally made of wood, although sometimes the handles are reinforced with a plastic covering. The head of a racquet may vary somewhat in size and shape. The heads are circular and about 30 centimetres (12 in) in diameter. The racquet handles are short, and with very little trunk between the handle and the racquet head.
The standard ball used is the same ball as is used in squash. However, novice and intermediate players sometimes use a ball that is similar in size to a squash ball, but lighter and/or bouncier.

The game has developed a moderate level of popularity outside of Israel as a participatory sport, particularly where there is either a strong beach culture (e.g. Brazil, where it is also highly popular, but more commonly known as frescoball), or a significant number of Israelis living abroad

El frescobol es un juego de paleta típicamente playero entre dos o más jugadores. Es principalmente un juego no profesional, aunque en la actualidad se realizan torneos en varios países como Brasil e Israel. No debe ser confundido con el Tenis playa, el cual se asemeja más al Tenis al ser un juego de oposición y poseer una área para cada jugador delimitada por una red.
El juego consiste en golpear la pelota con una paleta y pasársela al compañero manteniendo la pelota en el aire el mayor tiempo posible sin que esta caiga. No hay un ganador o un perdedor.

La paleta clásica es de madera pero en la actualidad se encuentran también de plástico. Su forma puede ser circular o en forma de gota.

Matkot ist ein populäres Ballspiel in Israel und wird als eine Art Nationalsport bezeichnet.
Matkot ist kein Wettbewerbsport, sondern reiner Zeitvertreib am Strand, bei dem mindestens zwei oder mehr Spieler einen kleinen Ball ähnlich dem Tennis spielen. Die Schläger bestehen aus Holz, ältere sogar aus Stein. Der Ball ist der gleiche wie beim Squash. Anfänger spielen mit einem etwas leichteren Ball.
Der Ursprung von Matkot ist nicht geklärt. Man vermutet, er sei mit jemenitischen Juden nach Israel gekommen. Das Wort Matkot soll von einem arabischen Wort madka oder dem hebräischen Wort makah stammen, was klopfen bedeutet.[5]
Matkot wird hauptsächlich in Israel gespielt. In Brasilien, wo es ein ebenso reges Leben am Strand gibt, heißt es Frescoball.

Маткот — игровой ракеточный вид спорта на открытом воздухе (разновидность пляжного тенниса). Игра (одиночная — два игрока; или парная — четыре).
Популярная игра по побережью Средиземного моря. Ракетки традиционно делаются из дерева, хотя иногда ручки усилены пластиковым покрытием.
Стандартный мяч тот же шар, который используется в сквош. Сегодня используют уже зачастую полые мячи.
