ABOUT

(Malay: sepak raga; Jawi: سيڤق راڬا; Thai: ตะกร้อ, rtgstakro, pronounced [tā.krɔ̂ː]; Khmer: សីដក់ Sei Dak; Lao: ກະຕໍ້ ka-taw;Filipino: sipa; Vietnamese: cầu mây),[1] or kick volleyball, is a sport native to Southeast Asia.[2] Sepaktakraw differs from the similar sport of volleyball in its use of a rattan ball and only allowing players to use their feet, knee, chest and head to touch the ball. It is a popular sport in Southeast Asia.

In Malaysia, the game is called sepak raga or takraw. It is also kataw (Lao: “twine” and “kick”)[1] while in Thailand it is called takraw. In Myanmar it is known as chin lone, and is considered more of an art as there is often no opposing team, and the point is to keep the ball aloft gracefully and interestingly. In the Philippines, besides “takraw” it is also known as sipa, meaning “kick”.

Similar games include footbag net, footvolley, football tennis, bossaball, jianzi and sipa.
