Frescobol first began on the beaches of Copacabana, after the second World War by Mr. Lian Pontes de Carvalho. This game is played basically for fun, there is no competition or rivalry. You only need two racquets and a small ball, usually it's played close to the water. Frescobol is played along the entire Brazilian coast, and of course other countries are now playing it as well.
Now tell me... wouldn't it be perfect to order some food and drinks at the sand after sweating playing frescobol? Check my other posts on beach snacks and beverage.
