English: Friesian handball ( Frisian Keatsen, ) is a traditional Friesian sport, related to American handball and fives, that is most commonly practiced by people from the northern province of Fryslân/Friesland. It is believed to be one of the oldest ballgames and was an unofficial Demonstration sport at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. The score is similar to tennis. The first team scoring six games, wins the match.
Frysk: Keatsen is in spul wêrby’t in lytse bal mei de hân of fûst (al as net beskerme troch bygelyks in want) sa slein wurde moat, dat de tsjinstanner de bal net (jildich) retoernearje kin.
Nederlands: Kaatsen is een verzamelnaam van balsporten, waarbij de spelers de bal met de handpalm of vuist zo proberen te slaan, dat deze door de tegenpartij niet geldig kan worden geretourneerd.
