Valencian Frontó

For stone hands

Also called a hand ball, the sport is a form of Basque Pelota with the particularities of that is played on a fronton of 36 feet in which a leather ball hit directly by hand without using any tools. This approach has been extended more than the other, becoming a recognized professional sport in Spain and France.

Can be played individually or in pairs, doubles is the most common, and is that a player hits the ball with his hand before it hits the ground twice in the fronton (court) and this in turn must touch the frontis and then bounce in the area bounded on the court. The players are distributed so that there are two players in front (front) and two behind (defenders), one from each team.

It will decide which team starts with a coin toss to luck with a coin. The player with the ball will be placed on the line marked with a 6 starts to run forward until you reach the line 4 and bounce the ball on the floor and then hit it with his hand sending it to the frontis. Once you have made the serve, the opposing player hit the ball into the front wall and so on. The game strategy is to dominate the opponent to return the ball this way and thus forced to approach the frontis to try to get a "both" (point).

The Fronton is one of the most common games in our country and mainly in the Basque Country (Euskadi).


Formerly the Phoenicians played something like the Fronton, although the first story reported on this game dates back to beginnings of century XIX, referring to an Irishman named John Cavanaugh. In 1850 William Baggsse, of the same nationality as John, became the best player of his time, followed by other villagers who came to shape the sport as such.

A key event in history for creating the game was that the Spanish conquerors observe a game played by the Aztecs, these are supposed copied from the Maya. This was to hit a ball, made of a rubber core covered with linen and cotton, against a side wall frame immensely similar to the current facing (court). This type of ball was taken in the Spanish regions.

Over time, the dimensions and weights of the balls has evolved to adapt to the physical characteristics of people who practiced it. A mid XVI century, the ball game takes a sudden boom in the Basque Country and its surroundings.

The Fronton came in the XX to century United States, where was popularized by Phii Casey. By 1900 the sport became two, one practiced in courts of a wall, the other three walls in courts, both considered official forms of practice.

Although existed in our culture a game similar to racquetball, it took several centuries for the sport were taken seriously, but it was not still practiced regularized or was an officer, this changed on August 11, 1978 when it formed Mexican Federation of Fronton.

  • The serve is implemented by the Front and is at 14 meters from the frontis. It consists of 3 actions: the race and hit the jackpot. The front line runs from 6 to 4 with ball in hand, then throw it away after hitting the ground and sending it to the front wall of the pediment.
  • After the serve, once the ball bounces against the frontis, this has to fall within the area delimited by yellow lines, if it falls in front of the line 4 is less for the other team, if it falls behind the line 7 or P is "pass" and the player must serve again, if it falls again behind the line 7 is less for the other team.
