The brackets for the singles and doubles tournaments of the U.S. National Jai-Alai Championship on Saturday and Sunday, December 5th and 6th, have been released and here are some photo snapshots of those direct from Magic City Jai-Alai:
Magic City’s Andrew Blechman stopped by for a few hours this afternoon for the practice sessions. Spinner and Jairo from Dania were on the court when Andrew arrived and Magic City’s CRB was on the court with them. CRB kept us well with them according to Andrew.
The 2nd Dania group of Goixerri, Minte, Arrieta and Goita were pretty impressive according to Andrew and once Goixerri adjusted his serve to accommodate the Magic City court he looked even better. The Dania crew adjusted well to the court very well and Andrew said he was really impressed with Goixerri. The team of Goixerri-Chasio had participated in a 15-point partido at Dania Thursday evening and beaten the huge 1/9 win favorite team of Erik-Ladutxe which had come down to a 14-14 tie at the end.
Most of the Magic City players practiced on Thursday for the national tourney.
The tournament starts at 10 am EST on Saturday morning and can be seen live on JAC (the Jai-Alai Channel on YouTube). The tourney concludes on Sunday with start time also 10 am that day.
This is an event you won’t want to miss!
