Chic-chac, chula and Churruca

Posted on March 1, 2011 at 02:47:11 PM by TUFFTONY

Having played the game of course i know the difference between a chic-chac and a chula, a chic-chac hits the back wall then the floor, a chula hit the crack and roll out with no bounce. In normal performances i more accurately call the chula, but for the sake of crowd excitement I say chula a lot to get the crowd going, but for the more knowledgeable fan I will call it correctly from now on.

Many young fans never got to see the great Churruca play, but for those that did see him play as I did at Bridgeport Jai Alai, you would have to admit that he is one of the best if not the best backcourt to ever play the game and that includes; Lopez, Irastorza, Zarria, Mendi etc.
