    Jai Alai equipment rules

    The rules require five pieces of equipment: pelota (the ball); a cesta (the sling); a players uniform; a T shirt and a helmet. A pelota which is the games ball is made from Brazils rubber. It is harder than a baseball and faster than a golf ball. The pelotas can reach the speeds up to 150 miles per hour and that makes them the fastest flying balls in the world. A cesta is a sling in the form of a crescent shaped basket. It is made from the reeds woven over a wooden frame. Jai Alai players use it to give pelota a maximum speed. A cesta has a guante (a glove) sewn to it. A player inserts his hand inside guante to move a cesta. Backcourt players usually use longer cestas for faster speed. Frontcourt players use shorter cestas for better landing accuracy, higher spin and sharper angles. The players uniform includes white pants, red sash around the waist and colored T shirts. If there are 8 players or teams in the match, there must be 8 different colors for T shirts. The front of the T shirt must show the number of the team, which is the same as the post position. The back of the T shirt displays the number of an individual Jai Alai player. The players (pelotaris) have to wear the protective helmets, which are mandatory. The helmets are made from the hard and durable plastic and filled inside with the thick foam liner.
