Sepak Takraw is a spectacular sport originating in South East Asia. Sepak meaning ‘kick’ in Malay, and Takraw being the Thai word for the woven ball used to play. Picture a match of kick-volleyball played on a badminton court. Players can play the ball over the net using anything except their hands and arms.

This makes for a super athletic sport with men and women requiring immense flexibility and power, most points are won with stunning aerial manoeuvres as players jump sky high to kick the ball back towards their opponents.
