pilkoĵetilo

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.

Usage notes

A batilo (literally hitting device) and a pilkoĵetilo (literally a ball throwing device) are used to refer to any piece of sports equipment used to strike a ball and can be used interchangeably (though batilo is far more common). Rekedo and raketo carries with them the sense of a piece of sports equipment with a handle below a large circular or oval striking surface. A tennis racket and a golf club are both batiloj, but neither a baseball bat nor a golf club is a rakedo. A raketo is also used to refer to a rocket or missile.
