Jai-Alai means “Merry Festival” in the Basque language. Professional Jai-Alai in America originated at the Miami Fronton. Over three centuries ago, in the Basque area of Spain’s Pyrenees Mountains, Pelota Vasca (Basque Ball) developed. Some games were played at festivals and were called Jai-Alai (Merry Festival). The most daring of these games (Cesta Punta) evolved into the game you see in America. It is the world’s fastest ball game.
