Fronton icon

A Fronton (Basque: frontoi or pilotaleku, French: fronton, Spanish: frontón) is a two walled or single walled court used as playing area for Basque pelota.

The front wall of the first frontons in villages was usually the wall of a church. Because the games being played close by, several priests would play pelota along with the villagers and got to be well-known players and often served as referees in provincial or town competitions but were out of the picture when it turned into a commercialized sport.

Because of the increasing popularity of the game, many Basque churches put up signs forbidding pelota games on their porches. The game were also played in town halls, but when the game turned into a highly popular entertainment in the region, towns started to build special frontons in open-air or closed courts.
