Orlando Jai Alai: 31 photos of what it’s like today


In our July 10 feature story by Justin Braun, we talk to people concerned about the fate of Orlando Jai Alai, a local landmark that has been hosting professional jai alai games since the 1960s. The sport has been dying a long, slow death, and the owners of Orlando Jai Alai are in the process of rebranding the facility as a multi-use venue. Fans of the sport – particularly the amateur players who use the mostly vacant court to practice and play – are concerned that the rebranding could mean the end of jai alai in Orlando. We went inside the Orlando Jai Alai facility and snapped some photos to show you what it's like in there today.
