A dream team was the one that starred in the traditional Partida de Benvinguda in the 'cathedral' of the pilota, the Trinquet Pelayo de València. An event organised by the Universitat de València with the collaboration of the Fundación Pilota Valenciana.
Two sessions of professional escala i corda specially aimed to the students of the Universitat de València.
The first professional encounter was on Thursday 11th October and closed with the victory of Salva Palau and Jesus, 60-40, against De la Vega and Santi. As the Fundación points out in a statement, with a fair result: an obvious difference at times and which, finally, “the strength of the rest of Alginet and the smashes perfectly directed by the mitger of Silla have made the game turn out of a blue colour again.”
The Saturday 12th October was marked by the match between Javi and Francés who won 60-50 to Felix and Soro III and as the Fundación says: “After a meeting of balling, exhaustion, beautiful quinzes, this last couple, led by the escaleter of Petrer, has achieved the victory”.
Two memorable days that counted with a good affluence of the university community, with an outstanding presence of the students of the subject of pilota valenciana of the FCAFE.
The marvellous spectacle by these four professionals of the pilota valenciana marks the end of a new edition of the event that inaugurates the university course at the Universitat de València.
