Orlando Jai-Alai puts spectators court-side for blistering contests of the ball-flinging sport invented by the Basques. A matinee encompasses up to thirteen round-robin-style matches of whiplash-inducing play as the ball flies from each player’s xistera, or basket, at speeds of more than 180 miles per hour, or the average velocity of a spitball from a jazz trumpeter. A $10 wagering credit gives bettors a stake in the action as their fortunes ricochet from wall to wall. Click here to see match entries and results as they are posted.
