Superflex Frescoball Club

Frescoball/Frescobol is a popular beach sport, similar to beach tennis, which was founded on the beaches of Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is very much an artistic sport, similar to rhythmic gymnastics, skating and synchronised swimming, usually played as singles or doubles. Players work together to keep the ball in the air for as long as possible and are judged on artistic merit by a referee. The game is played in 3-minute intervals and team that accumulates the most ball exchanges is declared the winner. Points are also allocated for flare and flamboyance, skill and the power, speed and degree of difficulty of the returns.
