Cestopal is a field founded in Argentina, more precisely in the city of Buenos Aires, at the beginning of the 20th century by Professor Enrique Romero Prest.
During those years, secondary school students started practicing this sport in ‘Physical Education’ which – till then – basically consisted of military gymnastics exercises.
According to the Argentine Cestopal Federation, the sport was named “Basketball” until it changed its name in 1986 “with the aim of starting its international expansion”.
