It's been described as the "world's fastest game." Surely you have seen it before. It's the game where two uniformed and helmeted players (4 in the case of doubles) dart around an over-sized racquetball court (with the left wall missing), whipping a rubber ball against a wall, using a claw-like "cesta," a curved wooden basket worn on the right hand. It gives the ball extra velocity. This sport is gaining followers in Mexico, even though
it was invented in Basque Country, Spain over 400 years ago and was, until recently, the domain of Caribbean countries. You can see a match at the Bingo Sports Book building across from the Hyatt Regency. It is only one of two sports that do not permit left-handed players. (Polo is the other.)
