Jai-Alai is a 400-year-old sport that originated in the Basque province of Spain. It has been played competitively in the United States for almost a century. Players use a basket-style racket called a cesta to launch and catch a ball which often travels at speeds exceeding 150 mph. The five-team Battle Court league features the top jai-alai players in the world including several former University of Miami athletes. They join an international array of talent from Spain, France, and Mexico.
