It is an indoor sport with two or four opposing players with rackets; the players rally a bouncing ball using all surfaces of the court. ~A raquet is a type of bat with a round or oval frame strung with usually nylon; used especially in tennis and badminton.

This is a very interesting pastime, especially due to its origins that being of a game invented and played by prisoners in 18th century England, hehe. Later it became popular outside and took over gaining huge popularity up through the 19th century. The players stand parallel which each other facing a wall and use something like a smaller tennis racket to hit a ball against a wall back and forth between each other.
