jeu de paume (racket court sports, court ball games, ... Physical and Mental Activities (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Game of medieval origins, the indoor precursor of lawn tennis; originally played by hitting a ball with the hands without rackets, thus the name meaning "palm game." Rackets were eventually introduced. It is now played on an indoor court with four irregularly sized walls, using pear-shaped, lopsided rackets to hit cloth balls that are much harder than those used in lawn tennis.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een spel van middeleeuwse origine, de binnenshuis gespeelde voorloper van tennis; het werd oorspronkelijk gespeeld door de bal met de hand, in plaats van met rackets, te slaan, vandaar de naam, die 'palmenspel' betekent. Later werden de rackets ge├»ntroduceerd. Tegenwoordig wordt het in een zaal met vier muren van onregelmatig formaat gespeeld, en gebruikt men peervormige, scheve rackets om stoffen ballen te slaan die veel harder zijn dan tennisballen.
