Each Capri Frescobol paddle set includes two paddles, a beach bag and two Frescobol balls.
"Our frescobol beach paddle ball sets are expertly crafted using reclaimed hardwoods. Each paddle is made of black walnut and basswood and are as unique as the trees they came from."
Frescobol is a classic beach paddle game from the early 1940's. Rumour has it that the game was born at the infamous Copacabana beach just outside of Rio de Janero Brazil. There are also other versions of the game seen throughout Europe and the Mediterranean where it is also known as Matkot, Paddleball, Racchettoni.
The game itself is simple and fun. There are no winners or losers, just great exercise while getting your tan on. Each player simply grabs a beach paddle, faces off and hits the ball to each other to keep up a rally. That's it. It is a great way to improve physical and mental balance, concentration, coordination, agility and reflexes. It is healthy and therapeutic! Trust us, your physical condition will improve and calories will be burned on average of 800 per hour!
To keep our company sustainable and responsible we commit to planting one tree for every Capri Frescobol beach paddle ball set purchased.
Our planet is currently losing over 15 billion trees each year. That’s 56 acres of forest every minute. We’re working to stop that trend and turn it around. We’re planting trees that help communities—especially the world’s impoverished communities—sustain themselves and their local economies. For every dollar spent on tree planting, 2.5 dollars is generated in local income and benefits. Help us restore tree cover and rebuild local economies. Every tree counts!
To this end we have partnered up with Tree Canada, a registered Canadian charity proudly dedicated to planting and nurturing trees.
For 25 years, they have engaged communities, governments, corporations and individuals in the pursuit of a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians.
Since 1992, Tree Canada has planted more than 80 million trees, greened more than 600 schoolyards, helped restore places hit by natural disasters and brought together urban forestry experts greening cities all across Canada.
