Games of gain-ground
In September, 2012, the Internacional Ball Sport Federation (C.I.J.B) decided to create 4 modalities of the ball game in international competitions :
Llargues is a game of gain-ground.
International competition of Llargues [edit | edit source]
The llargues is a Valencian pilota modality that takes place in the street. The Internacional Ball Sport Federation established rules to make an international sport by making him play on a ground used for the Balle pelote.
If on the serve the ball surpassed the midfield the ball must be hit on the air or after the first rebound on the ground, but if the ball arrives bouncing before the midfield then there is no one-rebound limit.
When a team gets two "lines", or the score is "40 and 1 line", both teams must change their respective mid-fields.
The point may be attained directly or postponed.
International game[edit | edit source]
The International game ( jeu international in french , joc internacional in valancian ) is a ball game modality that joins up many sports allegedly derived from the Longue paume. It's played in the Handball International Championships by teams from the Americas and Europe.
International game is played on a rectangular, flat surface, 70 m long and 20 m wide (15 m at the "service" end). The endings of this rectangle are the "service" and the "receive" lines. In the "service" field there is an 8x8 m area, that's the "service box".
For women, the rectangular is 60 m long and 15 m wide with a service box 6 x 6 m.
It's played with a white rubber ball. No gloves but small protections are allowed.
Every point consists of four points: 15, 30, 40 and game.
Every point begins when a rotating player from the team at the "service" field throws the ball from the "service box", after that players hit it in order to send it behind the opponent's end line or, at least, move it as far as possible.
