Madrid, Spain – Sports and Pastimes
This website provides a short summary of the main sports that you can find in Spain. There are many similarities and differences to the United States that will provide discussion points in class.
The bullring with its theatrical and sporting elements is considered
by the population as the second most popular pastime in Spain.
This is a sport that competes for second place with Bullfighting,
after Football, for the most television spectators.
Without question this sport is foremost in the minds of the majority
of Spaniards and throughout the country
game is based on the principle of propelling a hard ball, using a
basket-like glove at great force against hard high walls, much in
the manner of squash but without using rackets.
