Pelota Vasca


It should be said that Basque Pelota is as much a traditional local sport as it is an international sport. It is played in the Basque Country as well as in many other places around Spain, France, America, and even in the Philippines.

Depending on the court used there are various rules and depending on the tools used there are different varieties.

Nowadays, the most popular disciplines are Hand Pelota and Remonte.

There are many courts all over San Sebastian; every neighbourhood has one if you want to play. However, if you prefer to watch professional players, then the Frontón Galarreta in Hernani is you can enjoy very exciting Remonte matches.
