Sepak Takraw Ball
SepakTakraw is a form of kick volley ball and is a team sport – players kick a rattan ball, over a net, by using only their feet, knee, or head to touch the ball. There are many Sepak Takraw clubs in Mandalay such as Aung Taw Mu, Electric, Ye Man Aung, Man Myo Daw, Shwe Nyaung Pin, Kyel Tagon, Paung Le and Khit Kyaung Thar. Each team has their own playground but competitions are mostly held at Ye Man Aung, Shwe Nyaung Pin and Man Myo Daw playgrounds. There are about four competitions a year. There is no special training course for Sepak Takraw Ball but you can learn from the best by playing and practicing with Myanmar’s selection players at Ye Man Aung and Paung Le grounds.
