Re(3): New Jai Alai Fronton in Pamplona

That's a good question. There isn't any back wall yet, but I don't now the details. I guess because they want to celebrate competitions in the two "official" formats, one for 36 meters and the other to 40 meters. So they suppose to built soon a movable back wall...But anyway they had the opportunity to do a real jai alai fronton (54 meters) and put a removable back wall to reduce its size in such a way that could be used to those different formats. Imagine what they have done with the stands. I wrote a letter to the media anticipating this...big mistake. They threw the Euskal Jai 1909-2004 a 54 meters old fronton, the only in the city. I was the cradle of another local modality of Basque Pelota called Remonte (played professionally during 80 years) a very interesting modality also played with a basket in which you can't stop the ball. You have to hit it as it comes to you...(Well Jsolo is an expert of this modality). The fronton was smaller than the Beti Jai (https://frontonbetijaimadrid.org/) but that kind of fronton. The reason to throw it away was that was occupied by a pro-Basque youth. Fortunately, now we have a pro-Basque government, but to late...
Well, I'm very angry with this issue! Sorry
