In the cesta punta event of pelota basque, the ball is played with a curved basket (cistera). Outside of Europe, this variant is usually referred to as jai-alai.

The top four nations of the 1990 World Championships qualified for the Olympic demonstrations in Barcelona, which included the Spanish champions: Juan Antonio Compañon and Josu Mugartegui. The French and Mexican opposition offered some good resistance in the double round-robin (the only event in Barcelona to feature one), but the Spaniards proved unstoppable.
