Our sport celebrates its 30th anniversary – congratulations, Prof. Bai Rong!
More than 20 million active players worldwide (mainly in China) celebrate the 30th anniversary of BailongBall (Roliball) this year. We owe the invention of the ball, the racket and the game idea to the Chinese Prof. Bai Rong, who registered a racket under the name “Taiji game ball” with the Chinese patent authority on 24 September 1991, to serve the following purpose:
„The utility model relates to a taiji game ball racket by which a ball is received and thrown according to the force generating principle of taijiquan. The utility model is characterized in that a handle and two protecting handles are connected with a circular or elliptical racket frame, an arc-shaped soft surface is connected in the racket frame, the arc-shaped soft surface can change the arc according to the ball coming direction, the coming ball can be buffered, people can receive and throw the ball with the positive surface and negative surface of the ball racket, and the force generating principle and the sports skills of taijiquan can be grasped quickly.” (Source: China National Intellectual Property Administration)
