Battledore & Shuttlecock( or Jeu de Volantis ): is an outdoor game played since the earliest American Settlements.It is an ancestor to both modern badminton and table tennis.Games with a shuttlecock are believed to have originated in ancient Greece about 2000 years ago.The toys of the cup and ball family have been favorite childhood amusements for many centuries, unchanging in their basic form but marvelously various in the specific designs.This game is played by two persons with small rackets, called battledores, made of parchment or rows of gut stretched across wooden frames, and shuttlecocks, made of a base of some light material, like cork, with trimmed feathers fixed round the top.The object of the players is to bat the shuttlecock from one to the other as many times as possible without allowing it to fall to the ground.Many kids could be kept busy for hours with just one of these balls and a stick for a bat. Leather Ball: This is the ball that comes with Knurr and Spell. Knurr and Spell: Long before baseball became the official American past time, a variety of ball and bat games were popular. The object of the game was to hit the ball as far as possible toward a measured target.The spell is a small hard ball that was shot into the air when the Spell was hit with a stick or bat.
Our Spell and 17'' long bat are both made of native pine and are based on period artwork.For safety we have replaced the small hard Knurr (ball) of the original game with a small leather covered "lemon peel" style sewn ball.
