Re(6): What Fronton Had Your Favorite Chancha?

A testament to world jai alai that they had the BEST courts! Ocala was a tad dark and whoever put sand in the back wall paint messed it up.. But what a friendly, TRUE court to play on! Tampa was PERFECT! Not too fast, not too slow, great back wall, wide wood BRIGHT clean and meticulous. Also had the floor on gerters so you could feel the concrete shake when the ball hit it. Kept that picada down. Miami is old of course and is not sized for today's jai alai. The roof is VERY low. It feels short and narrow, and while not overly fast the ball gets on you quickly. Very different court. Ft. P is SLLOOWW, The sidewall is not straight and the back wall is DEAD. Rebote behind the 9 and you're cooked. For power players it's amazing! Pull out the dead ball and bury your opponent in singles. All the world jai courts had professional roof heights and made you exhibit controlled power.. Orlando, Newport, palm beach, dania , would say milford but they had slow pelotas, not nearly as much. Those courts you could EASILY pass and gave an advantage to fronts. Especially with the easy ability to loft the ball to pass. Orlando was so fast that most times power players could be at a disadvantage as mistakes turned to all but guaranteed kills plus the balls were too fast for the court, always.

So many great times, memories and adventures. Can't believe they're all but over.
