Jai Alai The Other Side Of The Screen by Jose M. Goitia

Just finished reading this good book and not sure if it was ever discussed on this site but I would consider it a must read for any fan of Jai Alai. I also checked and it’s available on Amazon for about $9.99 and well worth it!

Written by Jose Goitia who played professionally starting in 1962 at Dania and continued playing professionally at many other frontons including Ocala, West Palm Beach, Hartford, Ft. Pierce and several frontons in Spain.
Some of the chapters include;

FRONT COURTER OR BACK COURTER?
LANGUAGE OF THE GAME
EXPLAINING THE GAME
PARTIDOS AND STRATEGY
TACTICS OF THE GAME
THE SERVE
SINGLES
WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A GREAT PLAYER
MISSING THE “EASY BALL” CATCHING THE “TOUGH ONE”
INDECISION ON THE COURT
A LOOK AT JAI ALAI FROM ANOTHER ANGLE
ETC. ETC. ETC.

His closing statement;
“For a long time I felt someone should give the public an opportunity to understand the playing of Jai Alai from a closer perspective. I hope that the information that I have provided will do so.
I realize there will still be times when the fan wonders why certain things happen on the court. But, perhaps the only way to understand them would be by stepping on the court wearing a player’s suit with cesta in hand and be a competitor.
I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.”
