Collet – A sport similar to tennis. It is played with three people on each team, in an enclosed room. The ball is only allowed to bounce on the floor once. The floor space is broken into three equally spaced areas. One member from each team stands in each section. Teams take turns hitting the ball, making it bounce off walls or the ceiling and then hit the floor. The other team has to hit the ball before it hits the ground again. Team members will try to distract the other person in their area, but can not directly stand in the way of the ball.
