Valencia offers a complete spectrum of facilities for sporting activities, greatly aided by its mild climate. You can concentrate on water sports such as sailing ( 33Kb ) , windsurfing, fishing, etc. Or stick to land by playing golf ( 15Kb ) (four courses), tennis, or squash; going hiking or horseriding and participating in team sports. Or take to the wing with aerial sports, such as sports flying, microlight aircraft, hang gliding, parachuting or ballooning. For genuine Valencian sports, you should ask about pulling and dragging contests and the joies, or horse races, which are popular among regional farmers. The region's true protagonist, however, is Valencian pelota, played in special enclosed courts, or trinquetes, or in the streets of surrounding towns, in either llargues, raspall or galotxa styles.
