On the occasion of the celebration of the World Championships this coming October, Barcelona City Council has launched a programme entitled “L’escola fa esport a la ciutat” (Schools play sport in the city) to promote Basque pelota sports throughout all institutes and schools. Its goal is to introduce the various specialities of this sport to the maximum number of students aged between 11 and 18. Organised by the Barcelona Sports Council and Catalan Federation of Basque Pelota, the programme aims to take kids to the clubs and entities that exist in the city to become practitioners of these longstanding, traditional disciplines in our land.
