Re(2): Jai Alai in China Posted on February 1, 2018 at 11:29:12 AM by Mark KAMINSKI
Jai Alai was indeed in China in the 1930's. I own a program from China dated July 14, 1936 from Tientsin, another from either Shanghai or Macao from 1932 and one definitely from Shanghai dated January 6, 1936.I also have a 26 page long article on the Shanghai Jai Alai Auditorium and can tell you that Jai Alai opened in Shanghai on February 7, 1930.
Other unique places where Jai alai was played include Egypt and the Canary Islands.
Another unique program I own is from Rainbo Fronton in Chicago dated February 7, 1928. I have never seen another complete program from Chicago in the 20 plus years I have been collecting.
I hope this answers some of your questions.
