Jai alai

Jai alai (/ˈh.əl/; Basque: [ˈxai aˈlai]) is a sport involving a ball bounced off a walled space by accelerating it to high speeds with a hand-held device (cesta). It is a variation of Basque pelota. The term, coined by Serafin Baroja in 1875, is also often loosely applied to the fronton (the open-walled playing area) where the sport is played. The game is called "zesta-punta" (basket tip) in Basque.

Jai alai is a game in which you throw and catch a small rubber ball after it has bounced against one of three walls. The ball can travel up to 180 mph, and Jai alai is often considered the fastest game in the world. It is most popular in Spain and Mexico but it is becoming more popular in places like Italy and India.
