Main Nue--Pilota Ttiki--A New Main Nue Blog

The Pilota Ttiki weblog (in French) began on October 31, 2016. It is an exciting new source of information about the Elite Pro Main Nue circuit. The blog, at present, is divided into three sections. The heart of the blog is the "Actualities" section, consisting of match articles, which began with an article on the replay of the Tournoi Hoberenak (D'Arcangues) final between Larralde-Ducassou and Waltary-Bilbao on Nov. 1, 2016. Most important Esku Pilota matches, as well as one non-Esku Pilota match have been covered. These are detailed articles that are an excellent complement to the match articles provided by Esku Pilota. The "Portraits" section contains detailed player articles. So far one (Julien Etchegaray) is available. "Cote Vestiaire" are interesting feature articles about the things players like to do when they are not playing. The blog is also organized by player and date. More information about the (for now anonymous) author is available in the contact section.

This is a wonderful addition to the current awareness literature available on Main Nue. Enjoy and merci beaucoup Pilota Ttiki.
