Jai Alai/Cesta Punta--Dania Jai Alai team Jai Alai draft

Related Article (Source:, May 11, 2016)

In an attempt to provide something new for fans to see, Dania Jai Alai is introducing team Jai Alai into its Fall 2016 season. The matches will still be the same Quinella format but "on selected weekend nights the pairings will all be team related." Points will be accumulated based on performance and a cash prize will go to the winning team at the end of the season. All the matches will be at Dania Jai Alai. The teams represent cities but don't play in those cities.

Here are the results of the Dania player draft. The numbers to the left of the player names indicate the number of the draft pick.
