MONDAY 31 MARCH

Today I learnt that Basque students like playing pilota or pelota. If I told you that they play handball, you would get misunderstood by the so called game, and their game is different. There are a lot of varieties of this court sport which is played against a wall that they call fronton.

Esku-pilota or hand-pelota is played barehanded or with minimal protection. Well, the students recorded this video for their Comenius project a couple of years ago and I have watched it to learn about this sport. Why don’t you watch it to learn about this sport too?

Another variety is pala. The players use a wooden bat and a rubber ball. Nahia, Afrika and Chaima taught me about this game. I would like to show you that girls also play this game. Thanks, girls!
