Volo, should you wonder: "The root 'volo' comes from the Latin word (volatus) for 'flight.' In volotennis, the ball is usually struck while still in flight, (i.e. before it bounces)." Ah. Of course. Still in flight. As in badminton. With Paddle Tennis. Furthermore, "volotennis can be played indoors or outdoors on any surface (concrete, asphalt, grass, sand, wood, etc.)." Again ah. A sport for many surfaces.
"The sport of volotennis was invented on the 4th of July, 2002 in Lafayette, California, USA. The sport's creators are Paul Loscavio, Nancy Loscavio, Steve Cornacchia, Kelly Cornacchia, Ray Ginochio, and Tom Schulting."
Thank you to each and all. You have brought a little more fun into the world.
