Global 3 minute challenge to players of Frescobol, Palas, Matkot, Greek ΡΑΚΕΤΕΣ, Plaeta-playa

'The Global 3 minute challenge. 'ACHIEVING SYNCRONICITY'

In 2012 We will launch a Global challenge that will allow all our friends who play the various beach rackets sports all around the world under different names to use the rackets of their sport and the ball of there sport and time a 3 minute interval and record how many balls the two players can hit in the 3 minute Interval.
To keep it simple we will count only when one player hits the ball.
When the clock starts players will have 3 balls in all. 1 ball for each minute. ( One ball will be in play and the other two balls will be in the possession of the two players to use when the ball in play is knocked out of the zone of play.)
Frescobol players may use the traditional Pear-shaped Rackets and ball of FRESCOBOL.
The Players of MATKOT may use Traditional Circular Matkot racket and the small squash ball.
The Players of Greek BEACH RACKET may use the Traditional Greek beach racket and the tennis ball.
The Players of PALAS in may use there respective Palas of LuisCalle and pink racquetball ball.
The Players of PALETA-PLAYA may use their traditional Bats and balls also.
The distance will be set between 6 metres and 9 meters
A backing sheet or suitable screen to stop the ball from flying too far when it is struck badly will make retrieving the ball easier.
The times must be authenticated. The video recoding from the time of the start of the Clock when the first counted ball is struck until the end of the 3 minutes must be live recording. ( This part must not be edited or broken in any way)
For this to be truly a global Challenge we encourage as many of our friends to take part as possible.
Full detail of this Global Challenge and a better demonstration video will be uploaded the third week of January 2012. The Challenge will officially start in February 2012.

( This Global 3 minute Challenge is not in anyway intended to undermine the rules or scoring system of the current sports of Frescobol, Breach racket , Matkot, Paleta-Playa or Palas, but is solely intended to link all the family of players of beach racquetball in the many form in which it exist into a 'Global Family' where we can have this friendly global competition in our respective countries.) Eventually we will meet in person to challenge each other in the flesh.
The ultimate aim is the see who among us will present to the world a pair of players who will have the fastest return rate of the ball with the most accuracy, the most precision, the highest level of partnership cooperation and union of players.)
We are expecting to see style, flare and flamboyant and energetic, expressive, and fun presentations. (((( DO NOT TAKE IT TOO SERIOUS=== Try to have FUN))

Ultimately the name will be 'The Global 3 minute challenge. 'ACHIEVING SYNCRONICITY'
