SEPAK RAGA

In this traditional ball game, also called ‘sepak takraw’, a ball about the size of the palm and made of woven strips of bamboo or a rattan is kicked using the legs or any part of the body except the hands. There are two main types of the sepak raga; the original form is ‘sepak raga bulatan’ or a circle where the team tries to keep the ball aloft as long as possible. The modern ‘sepak raga jaring’ or net court form is now played in international competitions.
