“We look forward to welcoming back our loyal fans and greeting newcomers to the Fronton for another exciting season of Jai-Alai,” said Arnaldo Suarez, CEO of The Casino @ Dania Beach. “Through our commitment to Visit Lauderdale’s Safe + Clean Pledge, we are more prepared than ever, and our staff and players are looking forward to another great season.”

Dubbed the fastest moving ball sport in the world by Guinness World Records, Jai Alai has been hosted for more than 60 years at The Casino @ Dania Beach. The dazzling display of skill and speed has been played in South Florida since 1924, when the first fronton opened in Hialeah. Jai Alai originated as a handball game in the Basque area of Spain’s Pyrenees Mountains over four centuries ago, where games were played on Sundays and holidays in small villages at the local church, hence the name jai alai which means “merry festival” in Basque.
