AG2019 Sepak Takraw

Sepak takraw is a spectacular acrobatic sport originating in Southeast Asia. Sepak means ‘kick’ in Malay, and takraw is the Thai word for the woven ball used to play. Picture a match of kick-volleyball played on a badminton court in which competitors volley a ball over a net, using any body part except for their arms and hands.

This makes for a super athletic sport with men and women requiring immense flexibility and power. Most points are won with stunning aerial manoeuvres as players jump sky high to kick the ball back towards their opponents.
