    • It is in Bidart in the Basque Country that the Tambourindeguy brothers created their workshop Ona Pilota , which means “Good Pelota”. Converted into cestero and pelotero, they open the doors of their workshop to you to discover the art of making and repairing chisteras and balls. In France, the cesteros (manufacturer and repairer of chistera) are not numerous and few agree to transmit or share their knowledge.

      Thus, Patxi, who has always loved wood and studied wood production, had to learn his skills alone. He learns the cestero job in Miami, sharing with people who repaired their gloves during his pro career, then repairing and making his own gloves. In St-Jean de Luz, a man named Louis taught him how to repair the leather of the balls . What's inside the pelota, from repairing to making, is a Mexican named Clemente “pelotero” for 40 years who taught him in Miami.

      All this know-how acquired over several years here and on the other side of the world Patxi brought him together in his workshop Ona Pilota , teaching his brother Jon. The visit to the Ona Pilota workshop is a unique opportunity to discover a rare and artisanal profession with Cesta Punta world champions who are as passionate as they are experienced.

    Very nice discovery! As part of a weekend in the Basque Country, we let ourselves be tempted by an initiation session in Basque pelota. What a great surprise to have been able to take advantage of Patxi's expertise and kindness. He was able to adapt completely to our group of novices. We have adored !

    Top initiation! Patxi made us discover 3 games of pelota in a very educational way and in a good mood! I recommend without hesitation. The workshop he runs with his brother Jon is a hut of pelota enthusiasts! Good luck guys for the future and for the tournaments of Cesta Punta 💪😜

    Spent the morning with Jon getting an introduction to 3 variants. Lots of laughs, a bit of sweat and loads of fun. Jon was excellent and Patxi very helpful in arranging over the phone. Jo!
