Description

This invention provides apparatus for a game requiring a limited playing area as compared to, say golf, soccer, which may be indoors or outdoors.
The invention also provides portable dishes or (target areas) in which the player uses as a goal post, to prevent digging up the field.

Figure 5. Shows the same club with some styles.
Figure 6. Shows a rectangular barlet.
Figure 7. Illustrates a portable target area.
Referring now to the drawings, and more particularly to Figure 1, which shows the game apparatus generally indicated 1. This is the starting point. This is where the ball is hit when either the ball goes out of bound, or when starting to play the game. The size of the starting point is at least 0.787 inches in diameter and is positioned on top of the target area.
2. This is the target area. The circle can be a full circle or a semicircle measuring 2 feet in diameter.
This is the proper length of a circle in a 24 by 35 feet court. Where the land is limited, a reasonable size can be used to make the circle.
3. Target area) this is where the ball has to land for a player to get a point. This target area, can be a hole or portable target area, or a paimed circle.

5. Showing the interior view where the ball has to land to get the point.
6. Showing the smaller circle inside the larger circle measuring 2 feet in diameter. The smaller circle is used by players B and E.
7. Showing where the ball has to land in the smaller circle in order to get a point.
8. Base line. This is the limiting line for players A, C, D, and F. Players position theirs balls on this line before striking the ball. Players using bases B and E position their balls on the line of the field.
9. Cross-section of the barlet or paddle. This is the club used to play the game.
10. Section view of a ball. The ball is a rubber ball that can bounce off the ground to the air measuring 2.5 inches in diameter and weighs approximately I2 ounces. When the club strokes the ball, it bounces off and moves towards where the ball is hit.
11. Showing the field. A normal field of the game measwes 24 feet wide and 34 feet in length.
12. Showing the head portion of the club. The head is circular in nature and measures 1.5 inches in diameter. The circular head is the part that hits the ball.
13. 'This is the playing area. Players hit the ball inside this playing area.
When the ball goes out of bounds from the opposing player it belongs to the other player.

Referring now to figure 3 Which shows two bridges or barriers on two sides of the field. I . The barriers are not necessary in the field but can be used to stop the ball from wondering away from the target area. The barrier measures twice the target area and stands at Least 3 inches in height.
Referring now to figure 4 The cross-section view of the round headed club, which comprises a circular striking head and the handle.
The design of the club shows 1. The round head, measuring at 1.5 inches in diameter. It is this head that hits the ball. 2. Showing the body of the club measuring 2 inches in diameter.

4. This is a bridge or barrier from which the ball touches before it goes inside the hole. It measures 0,591inches from the wall, and 1.969 inches lengthwise while curved in the middle of the target area 5.315 inches above the hole. The berries improves scoring from a greatef distance.
At least it may be bright orange in color separating it from the body color.
5. This is a button you press to push the ball out of the hole. The button is not necessary when an opening is left for the ball to get out automatically at the sides where the ball does not get in contact with anything on its way into the hole.
