Will link directly below.

Note: this is outdoor jai alai, the ancestor of today's indoor game. It is played without helmets and with three man teams. The court is 80 meters long. The camera angle is so far away that you can only really see the "back court" play, but that is where most of the action is. Note how defensive a game it is. How different it is from the indoor game we know.

I wish Olivier had put his camera in the front instead of behind, but this is still the first complete 40 point match I've seen. Score is called out en Francais.

Enjoy
