They recently published a piece about the beginnings of basketball in Spain, before father Millán formally introduced the sport. It started as a ladies' sport as it provided physical exercise without the competition and contact unsuited to the fair sex. Apparently it had became fashionable in ladies' schools in France and England and it was copied in Madrid.

It was a temporary fade that did not catch on, but it was curious to read some contemporary articles about it.
