Sport review

Played individually or in teams, Basque pelota’s goal is to hit the ball against the wall (“frontis”) to score points. It is played on a court called fronton and there is a variant called Trinquete, which is played on a closed court with an inclined roof on the side, and another one called Peruvian fronton.Matches will be played in sets (games), according to International Federation of Basque Pelota (FIPV) general rules of the sport.The pools made up of five teams will play in a round-robin format.  In the pools made up of five teams, teams 3 and 4 compete for the bronze medal, and team 1 and 2 compete for the gold medal. For PGM fronton 30 meters (two pools of five teams), teams will compete in criss- cross semifinals (1A vs. 2B; 1B vs. 2A). Then, the losers of these semifinals will compete for the bronze medal and the winners will compete for the gold medal. Pools formed by six teams (two pools of three teams) will compete in criss-cross semifinals (1A vs. 2B; 1B vs. 2A). Then, the losers of these semifinals will compete for the bronze medal and the winners will compete for the gold medal.
