2-4 Palas and Paletas (the Palas and Paletas are wooden made rackets that are used to strike or hit the ball. The difference between them is their weight, length, and width),
Gloves (some of the disciplines in pelota require the use of a glove or Chistera),
A team scores by:
- playing the ball in such a way that the opposing team is unable to play the ball before it has rebounded off the playing floor more than once.
- playing the ball in such a way that it rebounds off the front wall and rebounds off the floor and outside the playing area.
A team may also score by the opposing team:
- hitting the front wall but either below the low line or above the high line.
- hitting the ball in time but failing to reach the front wall.
