Ogueta is a short Basque pelota fronton located in Vitoria, in Álava Province, Basque Country, Spain

History[edit]

Ogueta was built in 1979 for the need of a high capacity fronton for the important events of professional pelota. It's named after José María Palacios Moraza, considered to be the best pelotari born in Álava.

Modalities[edit]

The main modalities played in the fronton are Hand-pelota and Paleta-rubber. Despite that Ogueta has a bigger capacity than Atano III, were played only two 1st Hand-pelota championship finals. It's the usual fronton used for the Doubles-pelota and Cuatro y Medio championships.
