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.
