Derived from the game of the rope ball, the game of the ball and the bracelet is one of the oldest Italian national sports.

It is played in teams of three: one battitore (hitter), one spalla (shoulder) and one terzino (fullback). The aim is to beat a ball from one half of the field to the other half using a rowan wood sleeve (the bracelet) that weighs about two kilos.

The challenge takes place on the first Sunday of August in Treia, but the festivities begin ten days prior.
