This is a current awareness blog that links to the latest sources of information on Basque Pelota matches and Tournaments. It covers both North and South Basque modalities: Mano, Main Nue, Pala, Paleta, Remonte, Cesta Punta, Jai Alai, and minor modalites. We link to match articles, statistics and video highlights and/or full match videos.

Pala: InnPala Player win-loss table and independent matches through Apr. 29, 2017

Table of wins and losses for the 2016-2017 season.

As the season begins, and most professional Pala competitions use joko (set) results as the method for calculation tables, it might be interesting to track these players cumulatively throughout the season in terms of wins and losses. Players will be grouped by position (front or back).

Key: Player; Position (d=delantero (front court), z=zaguero (back court)); match wins-losses; joko (set) wins-losses; winning-losing streak; championships won. Matches that are single partidos will be noted. Table will be according to match winning percentage. 1st tie breaker will be number of wins. 2nd tie breaker will be joko win-loss differential. We begin the season with  La Liga Kutxabank, starting October 29, 2016. Note: all independent matches with known outcomes were linked to their respective blog posts on March 17, 2017.

In addition to the five major tournaments that made up the InnPala  Pala Tour 2016, a set of independent matches was scheduled for both North and South Basque locations. Details about these matches, including outcomes of matches, have been difficult to find, at both the InnPala web and Twitter site. InnPala does not archive its results very well, and the Twitter feed covers the matches only sporadically. Here is what I have found. If and when results come in, I will keep them here. If and when further independent matches are played, I will keep a record of them here.

Sources for all, unless specifically noted otherwise: InnPala Website and/or Twitter feed

==========================================

Upcoming matches: The 2016-17 Professional Pala season begins at the end of October with La Liga Competition, a double round robin competition followed by semi-finals and a final. The climactic matches will be played at Bizkaia Fronton, Bilbo (Bilbao). It begins October 29, 2016.

==========================================

October 15, 2016

Armintza Fronton, Lemoiz (1) (2): Gaubeka-Ayerbe defeated Zubiri-Imanol 3-2 (10-9; 9-10; 8-10; 10-9; 10-9). Source for Joko (set) scores: Diario Vasco Cartelara, October 17, 2016).

This was Mikel Ayerbe's final match. He retired after a 14 year career which included 14 championship finals and 7 championships.

More on this match and Ayerbe's retirement.

Argoulets Fronton, Toulouse (1) (2): Fusto-Imanol defeated Gaubeka-Brefel 3-2 (?-?; ?-?; ?-?; ?-?, 10-8). (Source: InnPala, InnPala Fronton Facebook page).

This was the final match of the InnPala Summer Tour 2016. IP Fronton Facebook page had a couple of things to say about it. One was that it was great 5 joko match played in front of a large audience. The other was that the match lasted 80 minutes.

October 1, 2016

Mimetiz Fronton, Zalla (1) (2):  Necol-Brefel defeated Gaubeka-Ibargari (substituting for Ibai-Perez) 3-1. (10-5, 10-6, 8-10, 10-6) (Source for joko (set) scores: Diario Vasco Cartelara (October 4, 2016). (Updated October 4, 2016). Note that Diario Vasco claimed that it was Gaubeka--Ibai Perez who were defeated.  Someone knows who lost this match. Please let me know.

The North evened the score with the South in this easy (according to the InnPala brief account) victory for N-B.
