Sepak takraw or kick volleyball differs from the similar sport of footvolley in its use of a rattan (woven) ball and only allowing players to use their feet, knees and head to touch the ball.
Sepak takraw is a popular sport in Southeast Asia. With acrobatic kicks similar to football, it is indeed an entertaining sport to watch.
The game takes its name from the countries where the sport is most popular. Sepak is the Malay word for kick and takraw is the Thai word for woven ball.
In today’s modern world, the ball is spherical and made of synthetic fiber.
