Pelota Vasca

Pelota Vasca is the official name, but the popular name for this racquet sport is Cancha.

It’s similar in speed to racquetball, but played only on one wall and the “racquets” are more like wooden paddles.

The facility is located in Boyeros and must have been quite a stadium years ago. Now, the roof is gone, the lights do not work, and new fencing is needed.

 

Of course there were a couple of boys hanging around …..

doing what boys do.

 

These men playing were practicing for the national team.
