Question 598: Basque ket Ball Anyone?

A sports question which is not related to some damn EPl clubs
AT long last.
ID the sport whose rules are as follows:


A team scores a point if an opposing player:
  • fails to serve the ball directly to the front wall so that upon rebound it will bounce between lines No. 4 and 7. If it does not, it is an under or over serve and the other team will receive the point.
  • fails to catch the ball on the fly or after one bounce
  • holds or juggles the ball
  • hurls the ball out of bounds
  • interferes with a player attempting to catch and hurl the ball.
Also described as a sport for ONLY right handers, 
guess left handed people don't do it right
lol


ANSWER:



Jai - Alai


Jai alai (pronounced /ˈhaɪ.əlaɪ/ in English and [ˈxai aˈlai] in Basque) is a variety of Basque Pelota. The term is loosely often also applied to the fronton (the open-walled playing area) where the sport is played. The game is called "zesta-punta" (basket tip) in Basque.
