Miami Jai-Alai
3500 NW 37th Ave.
Miami, FL

This is a fun and unique sport that you can wager on.  The object of Jai Alai is to
hurl a ball against a wall with so much speed and spin that the opposition cannot
catch or return it on the fly or the first bounce. The Game is played in a round-robin,
 by 8 players or teams. The game begins when Player No. 1 (or Team No. 1)
serves the ball to Player No. 2 (or Team No. 2). The winner of the point stays on
the court to meet the next player (team) in rotation. Losers go to the end of the line
to await another turn on the court. The first player (team) to score 7 points (or 9 in
Superfecta games) wins. Call ahead for policies regarding
