Frescobol Anyone?


At first glance, I thought I was looking at a fancy set of ping pong bats, but no these gems are Frescobol paddles for the Brazilian paddleball beach sport, Frescobol. Maybe it would help if I went to the beach more often, but all is good - I now know and also now want to own a set.  Beautifully handmade in San Francisco by Merriment Hardware , each one is crafted from reclaimed quality hardwood, while sending 10% of profits from sales to the California State Parks Foundation.

Yes, paddleball! We got a set in Ipanema while my husband and I stayed there on trip last spring. It is fun to play at a beach, plus we can shed a little pound !? The design by Merriment Hardware above is so gorgeous, and makes me want to keep them as home decor :)
