Remonte--Summer Comings and Goings
In addition to tournaments, Oriamendi2010, the entity that manages the sport in the South Basque, provides the staple of the sport, four matches every Thursday and Saturday. One of these matches is the marquee or "Star" match. It is covered with a detailed match report. Selected matches are also broadcast on the EITB TV network and then made available for viewing on demand. We will begin coverage of the Star matches July 16, 2016 except for a unique Star match that was held on June 25, 2016 and was broadcast on EITB. Since the "Star" matches are a recurrring feature, they will be kept at the "Remonte--"Star Match" page on the right side of the blog. Tournament coverage will begin with the two tournament finals that were broadcast on EITB in June and July respectively.
