Takraw or kick volleyball is one of the hottest recreational/sports activities, that is basically a cross between football and volleyball, played on a badminton court with a hand-woven ball (takraw).

Three players on each side of a 5-foot high net get three chances to kick, knee, shoulder, or head a takraw ball back to the opposing team. Like Volleyball, players try to play the ball toward the front of the net, making the best use of their three hits to pass, set and spike, as opposing players attempt to block - but all without using hands or arms,
The benefits of Takraw are that it: can be played as a solo activity, group recreation, or team sport; can be played indoor or outdoor; develops excellent eye-foot co-ordination, leg strength, and flexibility; enhances the skills required for playing football; and is very inexpensive to play.
