Fronton, or pilota is the collective term for a range of sports played on a large court with three walls.
The three main variations are with hand, paddle, or basket (jai alai, or cesta).
The number of players may vary from 2 upwards.
Most basque villages have a court, whether indoors or out.
Try and see a game if you can, it is a hotbed of (probably illegal) betting activity at professional level, and games are shown on ETB 1. (The Basque channel).
Equipment: Paddles, baskets strapped to your hands, or your hand alone is used (Frontennis uses a tennis raquet, but this is a bit "picoesque").
