The minimum distance between the players should be six to eight meters. Optimal size for an arena is 15 x 10 meters and the ground should be as flat and smooth as possible. Preferably frescobol is played on the beach but it is as easy to practice the sport on grass in a park or indoors. Because of the high speed and hardness of the balls the professional frescobol arena should be surrounded by screens in order to prevent the public from accidents. If played without screens, please make sure you find a place where you do not disturb the surroundings.
