At the 1900 Summer Olympics, a Basque pelota tournament was contested. Only two teams registered but one of them withdrew before the competition. The first prize was given to the Spanish team.

This was the only Olympiad where pelota was an official sport, being revived at the 1924, 1968 and 1992 Games as a demonstration sport.
