By Marco Gualazzini (Italy)
HPA2011 Nomination Award
Time: June, 2010
Place: Vientiane and Savannakhet, Laos
Sepak Takraw originated in South-East Asia. It is similar to volleyball, but different in that it is played with the feet, not with the hands. It began around the 15th century in Thailand, and boys used to stand in a circle, kicking a ball made of interlaced rattan. In 1866 it was made official as an agonistic game and the Siam Sport Association laid down the first official rules, bringing in the volleyball net.
