Sepak Takraw is an ancient sport largely unheard of in the UK - Bringing together the skills and techniques found in : Volley-ball, Football and Martial Arts.
It is traditionally played over a badminton-like net in a kick volley-ball style game, but Takraw can be played using a variety of styles, techniques and rules, from the simple and common keepy-uppy to complex team games, You can even make up and submit your own rules / games / pictures / videos to the UK Association and we can publish them on the web for others to see.

Used as a simple training / refining device for the body, it’s cardio-vascular exercise that improves your coordination and works on core muscles. Notice your football skills feel so much better after just a small amount of time with Takraw. Just as Takraw players train with Shuttlecocks we'd recommend Football players train with a Takraw.
Takraw is playable by almost anyone, and is fun, and a brilliant form of exercise that will improve most other sports skills, reaction times and coordination.
