Partido en el frontón de Oitz Guante-laxoa is the oldest type of pelota that is still played in a number of pelota courts and plazas. It is played with a special glove (guante) against a wall onto which the server strikes the ball. There are 4 players on each side.

The annual Guante-laxoa championship is a sporting event that has been held since 1979 in the four towns of Baztan-Erreka: Doneztebe/Santesteban, Irurita, Oitz, and Arraioz. It offers a unique opportunity to enjoy at first hand an event with a rich historical, cultural, and sporting heritage.

El año 2019 el juego de laxoa ha sido declarado como Bien de Interés Cultural por el Gobierno de Navarra.
