Why Jombola is Gaining Popularity
Newest Fitness Sport
It is a lively and exciting sport requiring skills, speed and stamina. No new infrastructure required. It is played in a Badminton Court using the same lines. Badminton courts are available everywhere.
Easy to Start
Suitable for all ages- the high grade sponge ball allows players to slow the ball down or speed it up to suit their playing style. Hence, from children to senior citizens, persons of any age can enjoy the game.
Indoor or Outdoor
This is an indoor, as well as an outdoor sport as it is not affected by wind. Jombola gets people out of their homes into the fresh air, wherever courts are available in playgrounds and parks. This in turn builds friendly and happy communities.
Affordable and economical
The racquet is of single piece construction; once purchased, there’s nothing to repair or replace. The ball is made of high grade foam and can last a long time. Also, unlike a shuttlecock, it is not breakable and cannot be damaged in normal play, except for the associated wear and tear.
Ideal sport for All
Easy to play. No lessons needed. Just pick up the racquet and start playing. This is a game for All Nations and All Races
