Games of gain-ground

Games of gain-ground are team sports which happen with a small ball or a balloon.

Competition of longue paume in the Garden of the Luxembourg (Paris), on June 18th, 1889

They are often played outdoor on a "ballodrome" but can also be practised indoor.

Among these games, longue paume is the most known because it takes place with rackets. Rules change little according to the concerned sport but the basic principles remain from a game to the other one.

Games of gain-ground are characterized in particular by the use of "chasses" which indicate the limit between both teams.

Points count by "fifteen": 15, 30, 40 and set, as in the tennis today.
