A boy with a mallet (4), drives a tennis-sized wooden ball (the 'boule') to an iron ring (5). The ring, adjustable in height, was mounted on a pivot in the manner of cloish or ringball, The stroke which was played to a target raised several inches above the playing surface , would have been extremely difficult. A pivot placed in the middle of the alley was a feature of some malls.
