Week 11 is scheduled to have 7 doubles matches each day. Play begins at 5pm EST on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Sunday’s matches are open to the public plus there is a new promotion “H2Hx20” for those in attendance. All you have to do is pick the winner of each match and the number of sets (either 2 or 3). If you get both right, you win $20. This is open for all matches throughout the evening. Each match is individual, so if you pick incorrectly, you still have a chance in the remaining matches.
You can watch the action at 5pm on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays at watchjaialai.com, laligasportstv.com, FTF Sports Network or download the free Jai-Alai Channel app. Remember, you can visit the fronton on Sundays to see the great action in person and a chance to win some money in the new “H2Hx20” promotion. Be sure to catch the post-game show with Stu and Andrew for a recap of the action.
