7 May 2018

A group of Mexicans organised and participated in the national championship for the Mesoamerican Ballgame yesterday. The event is aimed to celebrate Mexican heritage.

The pre-Colombian Mesoamerican Ballgame stretches back to roughly 1500 BCE. Gameplay varies among different versions of the game. Teams came in from all over Mexico, as well as from abroad.
