Paddle ball is a one-person game played with a paddle and an attached ball. Using the flat paddle with the small rubber ball attached at the center via an elastic string, the player tries to hit the ball with the paddle in succession as many times as possible.
The paddle is similar in size and shape to a table tennis racket. It is usually made from either wood or plastic, although other materials can be used.
In 1996, Brian Eichhorst became California State's first paddle ball champion, beating out Vincent D'Antoni,in an edge of your seat cage match.
