Rules to play Paddleball
Paddle ball is a one-person game played with a paddle and an attached ball.
1. Paddle ball
Paddle ball is a one person game played with a paddle and an attached ball. Using the flat paddle with the small rubber ball attached at the center via an elastic string, the player tries to hit the ball with the paddle in succession as many times as possible.The paddle is similar in size and shape to a table tennis racket. It is usually made from either wood or plastic, although other materials can be used.
The official paddleball ball is an unpressurized black ball with a small hole, slightly larger and heavier than a racquetball. Early in the sports history, many of the better players honed their paddles and guarded their designs. Other playersmost notably Bud Muehleisenstarted with commercial paddles by Spalding or Marcraft, and modified them to meet their personal preferences. Old tennis rackets could be cut down into paddles, and these paddle rackets as they were called gave a player such an advantage over a standard wooden paddle that a new game evolved from it.
Competitive paddles are still made in small shops, but the technology has advanced beyond early paddles. Modern paddles combine polymer foams, high strength metals, graphite and epoxy resin. Paddles are made in home shops by craftsmen such as eight time national champion Mike Wisniewski of Bay City, Michigan, who builds a few paddlesmore than needed for personal use, but not enough to be considered a manufacturer. These Wiz paddles are well enough made that they are often kept on display when not in use. A few small manufacturers notably Hillbilly Paddles produce hundreds of paddles per year.
3. An attached ball paddleball
Though normally thought of as a toy for children, attached ball paddleballs are a great tool for sharpening your hand eye coordination and getting comfortable with the paddle.
Hold the paddle in your dominant hand with your wrist facing up.
Flick your wrist upward to maneuver the ball to rest on top of the paddle.
Continue flicking your wrist to bounce the ball off the top of the paddle. Your goal is to continuously be able to bounce the ball on the paddle without the ball falling.
Move on to more advanced motions with the attached ball paddleball. Try manipulating the paddle so that the ball alternates bouncing on the underside and the top of the paddle. This is just another way to practice your hand eye control.
5. Lengths connecting
Test out different string lengths connecting the ball and paddle. Shorter paddleball strings make it easier to hit the ball, while longer ones make controlling the ball more difficult.
