Learn How to Play Cesta Punta

Test your skills at the fast-paced game of Cesta Punta, also known as Jai Alai. Learn from professional players and enjoy a game with friends or family, followed by a delicious paella lunch
Cesta punta

Cesta Punta is a traditional Basque sport, similar to racket ball or squash, instead of a racket, a curved basket is used to catch and launch the ball against the wall. The game is played in a two walled court called a fronton. The goal is to score points and keep the the ball within the boundaries of the court.

Every single town in the Basque Country has a fronton court where Cesta Punta or Pelota Mano (handball) is played. Learn about the history of the game, visit the picturesque coastal town of Hondaribbia and enjoy a fun and educational activity.

This family oriented experience is great for a group, bring your kids along and they will learn a new sport and some interesting history and culture while on holiday. To complete the experience we can also arrange for lunch at the venue, enjoy a delicious paella accompanied by txakoli (local white wine) and fruit juice for kids.  

Includes guide, local players, demonstrations and activities. Catering available upon request.
