JAI ALAI is a sport played with a ball (called a "pelota") bounced off a walled space - kinda reminds me of a very large racketball court. And instead of rackets, players hold a scoop-looking basket (called a "cesta") on one hand and catch the ball, then quickly throw it back at the wall. The ball moves VERY quickly (the record is 204 mph ball speed!) The ball consists of metal strands wound tightly together, then wrapped in goat skin. Players, or teams, alternate catching the ball in their cesta and throw it "in one fluid motion' without holding or juggling it. The ball must be caught either on the fly or after bouncing once on the floor.
JAI ALAI is still played in the north Miami area.
