Traditional games and sports: institutionalization

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear AEJeST family

I would like to inform you that this Thursday 29th October, through zoom at 24.00 hours, Guy Jaouen as President of ITSGA and myself as President of AEJeST are going to collaborate with the Pan-American organization of TSG. We will talk about the experience of AEJeST and ITSGA and highlight the importance of networking.

The idea is not to transform the TSG into Olympic sports, but to show the importance of having an institutional organization (statutes, rules of procedure, partnership agreements) for the protection and promotion of the TSG at the local, continental and international levels.

Best regards, Pere Lavega Bugués

The subject of this research is due to the fact that the hit with a bat can make the difference during an oina game. The purpose is to describe in detail the hit with a bat through a biomechanical analysis in order to obtain information necessary to perform a better hit since the longer and higher the hit is the better increases the chances for gaining points during an oina match.
