History

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

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.
