Trinquet de pelayo valencia


El trinquete de Pelayo (en valenciano: trinquete de Pelayo) es una de las pistas de trinquetes más reconocidas del deporte de la pilota valenciana en Valencia. Las competiciones más importantes de Escala i corda, como el Circuit Bancaixa, tienen sus partidas finales disputadas allí.
Desde esa fecha, ha mantenido su función como pista de pilota valenciana, sin ninguna interrupción destacable. Durante la Guerra Civil española el trinquet Pelayo fue confiscado y administrado por un sindicato.
El trinquet Pelayo forma parte hoy en día de un restaurante-bar. Para ir al campo de juego los espectadores salen del restaurante a un patio (cubierto por una sombrilla), y desde allí entran en el trinquet por una puerta junto a la esquina de la llotgeta.
El trinquet Pelayo es, según las necesidades del deporte de la Pilota Valenciana, una pista alargada, con una longitud de 58,5 m, una anchura de 11 m y una altura de 3 m. A pesar de su requerida forma alargada, es en realidad uno de los trinquets más anchos, lo que supone un cierto reto para los jugadores, acostumbrados a pistas más pequeñas. Este trinquet está iluminado y equipado con un marcador electrónico en la pared detrás de la galería de descanso.

During the Civil War the Trinquete de Pelayo was confiscated by a syndicate that entrusted the management to a group of pelotaris headed by the Faixero de Gandía (José Peiró Sanchis), who remained as quartermaster under the new Franco regime. In 1947 it passed into the hands of the Segarra company of Vall de Uxó, who restored the premises, but the major modifications, such as the roof of the trinquete, were the work of the Tuzón company, owner since 1976.
The Trinquete de Pelayo is 58.5 m long by 11 m wide and 9 m high. Because it is so wide, players need to get used to it and position themselves correctly. It is completely enclosed, covered, with lighting and electronic scoreboard on the wall behind the rest gallery.
In its beginnings the ground was made of flagstones, and until the 1920’s it was made of bricks. Until 1976 it was an uncovered ratchet, that is, without a roof. It was not completely enclosed either, since, although the galleries were covered by metal mesh, the balls could go out through the top (or through the holes): If it went through the dau part, people made a joke saying «That one went to the Institute» (referring to the Luis Vives Institute), and if it went out through the rest they said «That one went to the Ermita street».

At the back we can see how there is a long corridor which ends in a door that at first we do not think that it can keep anything interesting but when we open it we are amazed to see the great secret that keeps this place, a track of pilota. It seems incredible that a door can take you to this white court where the echoes resound.
The Pelayo trinquete, also known as La Catedral de la Escala i Corda, was inaugurated in 1868 and renovated in 1947, although the biggest changes took place in 1976 when the roof of the trinquete was installed.    It measures 58.5 m long by 11 m wide and 9 m high. In its beginnings the ground was of flagstones, and until the 1920’s it was of bricks.  It has 4 galleries, those of the walls of the dau and the rest plus two others on the walls, the side walls. The llotgeta is very wide and a little high, but without a wall of protection for the spectators, in addition the llotgeta of the superior authorities covers it totally, so that to send the ball there is not enough with a long bolea, but it is necessary to make it low and well directed.

The ‘Trinquet de Pelayo’ was a mythical place in Valencia where the ‘pilota’ was played, and in whose typical bar you could eat something basic while attending the sport match. Since four months ago, converted into ‘Pelayo Gastro Trinquet’, it is one of the few places in the center where you can eat traditional gastronomy. Rice of a thousand types and traditional dishes, in an unusual place.
While Pablo, already installed in this new place, serves the food, I think of one of his objectives when he accepted the challenge: «to eat traditional Valencian cuisine in the center» and I see it clearly. Because it is true. Whenever someone from abroad asks people from Valencia where to eat Valencian paella, we usually send them to the beach or to any of those rice cathedrals in the outskirts. And so on. Sepia with mayonnaise, for example, or titaina, or the authentic sang amb ceba. In the center has remained or the sophisticated, or the shabby, or the «for guiris».
And after eating a unique ajo arriero with garrofón (the typical vegetable of the paella) instead of potato, or the senyoret rice, or the grilled octopus with sweet potato and olive earth, which in a funny and surprising way is finished off at the table by Pablo himself, one thinks that indeed, this is the place where we want to go (and the day they solve a certain noise problem, even more). In fact, almost all the clientele is local.
