The Introduction of Pingpongo in the Basque Country couldn’t be in a better frame than the birthday of our beloved friend Marcelito. So we coordinated with him this first official special tournament in the promenade of Zarautz, right in front of the waves, the tourism office and a restaurant with Cider and Txacoli, of course.
Tournament included dozens of visitors in a sunny day who could not believe what was going on and basic obstacles for that context, like the ikurriña, birthday party balloons and sand buckets.
Measurement of head was used to define the serve, or jokes to define the first point. A game was played with hands instead of bats as basque people knows that quite well. As expected the incredible cut for lunch-coffee-NAP-swim happened, giving the name to this tournament, but also a super duper Pingpongo cake and happy birthday in diverse languages…
