Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Wednesday, 9 September 2020 is Vaqueta ball.
The vaqueta ball (Valencian: pilota de vaqueta, IPA: [piˈlɔta ðe vaˈketa]; vaqueta meaning "little cow") is the kind of ball used to play some Valencian pilota variants: Escala i corda, Galotxa and Raspall. Its name derives from the fact that it is made of bull's skin, hence its black colour (that tends to become brown as it is used), this way the ball contrasts with the white colour of the trinquets' walls.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:29 UTC on Wednesday, 9 September 2020.
For the full current version of the article, see Vaqueta ball on Wikipedia.
