The origin of the name is from the name of a region in Slovakia, Orava, where it was first played.


The first match of Oravian pelota was played in 2019 by T.L. and Imrich Kvajda. These two founded the sport.


The rules are very simple. The pelota is played on a small pitch in shape of a square with 2 players. You need to hit the ball against a wall, but if you hit it twice in a row, your opponent gets a point. He/She also gets it when the ball you hit flies out of the pitch.
