Jai Alai/Cesta Punta--Fronton Mexico Releases it's 1st Weekly Match Calendar

On March 30, 2017, Fronton Mexico released its first Calendar of scheduled weekly matches. The calendar covers March 28-April 2 and reveals, to those of us who were stumbling around the Facebook page trying to figure out the next matches, how the schedule works. It works like this. There is an opening partido,followed by a 5 point Quiniela match (contested among 6 players--all singles matches so far), followed by the Star Match partido, followed by another 5 point Quiniela match, followed by a third partido. The first Quiniela match appears to be an "A" players match. The 2nd Quiniela match appears to be a "B" players match. Quiniela players are also assigned to partidos on the same day.

This is a great communications improvement that clarifies what is going on at the Fronton. Many thanks to FM for it. The next step, obviously, is to rationalize the results information. Hopefully, that will come soon.
