Jai Alai Ancestor Game--Joko Garbi FULL MATCH VIDEO---and a note to Sixto


Will link directly below

Yesterday the FFPB (Federation Francaise de Pelote Basque) held it's National A and B Joko Garbi finals (video is the National A Final). Joko Garbi is a direct ancestor game of Jai Alai. If you look at the cestas, they are very similar except not as deep. It is a catch and throw sport, though the catching happens so rapidly that you can miss it. It's played on a 36 meter court. You can see most jai alai shots in an earlier form. Some interesting points.

1. It was a terrific match, won by the red team 40-37.
2. It was broadcast via Facebook live yesterday and is available today for on demand viewing
3. It is a full match video. Note that it is not of commercial quality, but it is watchable. Today they are doing Xare and the "producer" is calling out the scores point by point. Improved from yesterday.


To Sixto: If you want to show the people at Oriamendi2010 or InnPala how easy this is to do....
