Pelota (from Latin pila) is a name for a variety of court sports played with a ball using one's hand, a racket, a wooden bat (pala), or a basket propulsor (txistera), against a wall or, more traditionally, with two teams face to face separated by a line on the ground or a net.

There are many variants of the game. On Wikipedia, there is also Frisian handball. In Dutch speaking Belgium and in the Netherlands, the game is known as 'kaatsen'. In France and French speaking Belgium it's 'jeu de pelotte'. Both are mapped under the pelota tag.
