Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados.Beach tennis or frescobol, as Cariocas call it, is more popular on off-season weekdays than on crowded summer weekends. Even though players stay near each other, the game can be very fast and nobody appreciates being hit by a speeding ball...

Players do not keep track of points, the idea is basically to keep the ball from falling on the sand (or in the sea) for as long as you can. The best spot to practice is near the sea, this way you don't miss the parade of beauties passing back and forth. Later in the afternoon or earlier in the morning are the best hours to play, when it's not so hot. You can buy a set of rackets and a ball at one of the sports shops, and even at some bikini boutiques.
