Takraw

Takraw is a national sport in Thailand and also in the neighbour countries. The sport is often practiced by a group of young men who play and they use a small ball. Takraw is to keep the ball in the air as long as possible but also simultaneously play it on to person to person. All body parts taken from the hands and soles of the feet may be used when the ball is played. In this game you’ll find neither winners or losers and everyone can join in to play.

Normally, there is no normal game plan. At various special versions of the game as a man can tighten up like a badminton net and then you have to get the ball over the net and into the opponent's court. The best Takraw is that it can be played anywhere.

The ball used is like a bamboo ball and most of the people who travelled in Thailand have seen it, now you know what it is used for.
