PELOTA

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





A game similar to racquets, sometimes called "Jai-a-li," that is much
played in Spain and in Mexico. The game is played with a narrow
scoop-like wicker basket or racket which is fastened to the wrist. The
players catch the ball in this device and hurl it with terrific force
against the wall of the court. Pelota is a hard, fast game, and
sometimes serious injuries result from playing it.
