Description:
Play-field for ball games played by foot This invention relates to a play-field construction for ball games played by foot, particularly to a partly or completely palisaded play-field with holes.

As a consequence of technical development, an increasing part of population has chairborne jobs, thus exercises are of growing importance in spending fi-ee time. Open-air games like football or tennis require a large and expensive play-field. A spontaneously developed and popular game in Hungary to improve foot skill is"foot tennis", showing some analogy to lave-tenus as far as its rules are concerned. It is clear, that indoor games, such as table-tennis, have outdoor variants (tennis) played practically under the same rules. On the other hand, there are game pairs having the same or almost the same rules, played by hand (tennis) and by foot ("foot-tennis"), respectively.

The present invention is based on the discovery, that very popular billiard game variants, played recently in rooms that are often poorly ventilated, can be played by foot in a healthier environment, ensuring more intensive exercise and practically under the conventional rules on a play-field, constructed according to the invention.

Thus, the invention is related to a play-field for ball games played by foot, comprising a playing area, two bordering side palisades, one rear palisade optionally heightened and with one or more holes and optionally a front palisade, furthermore one or more built-in holes in the playing area.

The figures demonstrate advantageous constructions of the play-fields for ball games of the present invention.

Fig. 1 is the top view of the play-field construction.

Fig. 2 is the front view of the play-field construction.

Fig. 3 is the side view of the play-field construction.

Fig. 4 is the top view of an other advantageous play-field construction.

Fig. 5 is the side view of an other advantageous play-field construction.

Fig 6 shows a ball-lifting device.

Fig. 1 is the top view of 1 play-field with 6 holes, bordered by two 2 side palisades and 3/a heightened rear palisade with 4 hole.

Fig. 2 is the front view of 1 play-field with 6 holes, bordered by two 2 side palisades and 3/a heightened rear palisade with 4 hole.

Fig. 3 is the side view of 1 play-field with 6 holes, bordered by two 2 side palisades and 3/a heightened rear palisade with 4 hole.

Fig. 4 is the top view of an other advantageous version of I play-field with 6 holes, bordered by two 2 side palisades, 3 rear palisade and 5 front palisade.

Fig. 5 is the side view of an other advantageous version of I play-field with 6 holes, bordered by two 2 side palisades, 3 rear palisade and 5 fi-ont palisade.

Dimensions of 1 play-field can be, for example, 4x6 meters for the replica of the so called"rex"game, or 4X8 meters for the ball game replica of the conventional three-ball billiard game. It can be constructed of wood, asphalt, concrete, but cinder or lawn-soil are also applicable, 6 holes located in 1 play-field can be formed by lowering tubes into the play- field. They can be made simultaneously with the play-field if the construction material is asphalt or concrete. The diameter of 6 holes should match the dimension of the ball used-preferably a handball or a football-so that the ball can be taken out of 6 hole, for example using 7 ball lifting device (Fig. 6), which can be made of metal wire or of a narrow metal sheet.

2 side palisades, 3 rear palisade, 3/a heightened rear palisade and 5 front palisade can preferably be made of wood, plastics, metal (such as aluminium) or concrete, and these palisades can optionally carry advertisements as well. The height of 3/a heightened palisade can be, for example, 1-2 m, the others are preferably 30-60 cm high. The thickness of the palisades is preferably 2-10 cm.

2 side palisades, 3 rear palisade, 3/a heightened rear palisade and 5 front palisade can preferably be attached to each other by detachable joints, such as screws. The attachment of these palisades to I play-field can be performed by two methods. For 1 play-fields formed from cinder or lawn soil or made of concrete, the palisades can advantageously be fastened to their verge fi-om above by detachable or by not detachable joints. But the palisades can be attached to the side ledges of 1 play-field, preferably if they are made of wood, plastics or concrete, by detachable or by not detachable joints.

For the ball game adapting"rex"rules, 1 play-field has eight 6 holes an-ange as shown on Fig. I. An additional possibility to conventional"rex"is provided

by one or more 4 hole on the 3/a heightened rear palisade. For the ball game adapting billiard rules, 1 play-field has six 6 holes as shown on Fig. 4.

Auxiliary indications and objects, such as the fungifonn obstacle for"rex"can be placed on 1 play-field following the rules of the game.

Two. three or four play-fields can be implemented having joint i rear palisade or 3/a heightened rear palisade or 2 side palisade.
