Paddleball (one wall)

It’s an American ball game in which a small rubber ball is hit against single wall with the help of a solid paddle. This outdoor game is usually played by two people (singles) or by four people (doubles). Paddleball (one wall) sport tournaments are held under the administrative rules of American Paddleball Association.

As a general rule, the hitting ball must touch the wall without touching the floor of the court more than once for a valid rally. Black, blue and green balls are normally used to play this game. Originally, wooden paddles were used but now, you can have paddles made of graphite and titanium materials.

It is very much popular in California, Florida, New York, Puerto Rico New Jersey and also in Connecticut. Although indoor courts to play one-wall paddleball are rare in United States but do exist at some places.
This game is actually originated from American handball in which gloved palm or bare hands are used instead of paddles. Rest is all the same.
