Sepak Takraw AKA Ninja Volleyball

The best way I can describe the sport of Sepak Takraw is if 6 ninjas high on red bull brought a mini soccer ball to a volleyball court. The sheer acrobatic skill involved is out of this world and it's sad that the sport isn't more widely known.

When I was younger my dad took a trip to Thailand and brought home one of the balls they use. Juggling this ball made of rattan is extremely difficult, so it's hard to see these guys getting the amount of control and precision with each strike. This might be a game we could include at Pitch Black, although I don't imagine we would get too many squads. For this reason we will have to stick with competitive soccer tennis leagues.
