With a warm-up routine, we reduce the possibility of injuries, increase the effect of muscular work, speed up the functioning of the heart and respiratory system, and increase blood circulation.
Paeyball is a game played on a playing table which is divided by a goal. The objective of the game is to properly hit the ball over or through the goal (depending on the type of game that is played). If the opponent manages to return the ball properly, then a rally will occur.
The ball is put in play with a service: hit by the player over or through the goal to their opponent.
In games where the ball must pass over the goal, the ball must bounce on the player’s side of the table once and then on the opponent’s side once.
When the served ball touches the goal or the edge of the table it is considered an edgeball, then the server needs to repeat the serve. Three consecutive edgeballs are considered as a fault.
In games where the ball must pass over the goal when serving, the ball must be completely behind the table. In games where the ball must pass through the goal when serving, the ball must be in the touch with the imaginary line of the end of the table.
Each player has one serve in a row, the services are exchanged. Players need to change the playing side alternatively after each set.
In games where the ball must pass over the goal, the returned ball must bounce on the opponent’s side once.
During a rally, the ball can touch the goal and/or the edge of the table.
The rally continues until the ball goes out of the table or an opponent fails to return it properly.
If the ball bounces back from the goal and the ball has not hit the floor or the table (in games where the ball must pass over the goal) or the ball has not hit the floor (in games where the ball must pass through the goal), then the player can keep the ball in play.
The player winning a rally scores a point. The player will score a point when:
- the opponent fails to make a correct service or a correct return,
- the opponent’s served ball touches the goal or the edge of table three consecutive times,
- the opponent catches, holds, throws, or carries the ball (palming),
- the opponent touches the playing surface or goal or moves the table,
- the opponent plays with the part of the body which it is not allowed according to the type of game,
- the opponent crosses the extended imaginary line of the playing fields with any part of the body during the rally,
- the opponent touches the playing surface.
One set plays up to 7 points obtained in the two-point gap. The player winning three sets wins a game.
There are lots of different ways the games can be played. Each of these has a different name.
In the Grasshopper game, the returned ball must bounce on the player’s side of the table first and then on the opponent’s side.
In Alley-Oop game, the player will pass the returned ball with two touches, where the first touch must be with the hand and the second with the head.
In the Under-Over game, the served ball and first returned ball must pass through the goal, and the second and third returned ball must pass over the goal and in advance in the same order.
In Total game and Absolute game, a returned ball can pass over or through the goal. When served or returned ball passes over the goal, it is allowed that the ball touches either the goal, the table or both.
In Absolute game, optional one bounce of the ball on the ground is allowed.
In a game of doubles (two players on each side), players should make alternative returns. Each player has one serve in a row.
