Finding Beach Sepaktakraw

Published on November 20, 2014 by   ·   No Comments

With the 4 th Asian Beach Games currently under way in Phuket, Thailand; exactly what better opportunity to take a closer take a look at Beach Sepaktakraw and try to understand how it varies from the more common forms of sepaktakraw that we’re already familiar with.

To get started let’s have a look at some action from the Thailand Air Sea Land games 2011

Impressive skills on sand eh!

So of course the biggest difference in between beach sepaktakraw and regular sepaktakraw is that it’s played on the beach. If you thought sepaktakraw was difficult enough played on firm terrain, imagine trying to move quickly and jump on sand. Now imagine doing it only socks – no shoes in beach sepaktakraw! The next thing you will notice is that rather than two or three players per side, it’s usually played by teams of four. There is no service circle in the beach online game, so serving is from the baseline, and any of the four players are permitted to serve the golf ball. Beyond these key differences, it’s essentially the same game.

Tactically, however , beach sepaktakraw is a little different and has its own intricacies. Having four players per side leads to a myriad of different tactics that groups can opt for, starting with the serve. As the serve comes from the baseline the three non-serving players are able to position themselves in the court to prevent their opponents’ vision of the golf ball, introducing an additional challenge to getting serve. The most exciting tactic is the opportunity to run a double-spiker set up. This is where two of the four players are ‘designated spikers’ and will stand with back to the net at either post, awaiting the set from either the particular server or the feeder in the back again court. This leaves the other team guessing as to which player will be spiking the ball, and therefore where the spike will be coming from; making it remarkably difficult to block.

Sepaktakraw is already an exciting sport to view, and a lot of fun to play; beach sepaktakraw just kicks it up a level. So if you find yourself in Thailand anytime through now to the 23 rd of November, be sure you don’t miss the Beach Sepaktakraw event on Patong Beach! In this Asian Beach Games the best teams through all over Asia have converged upon Patong to compete in Regu (4 players per side), Trio (3 players per side), and Team (2 teams of 4) in both men’s and women’s, symbolizing the nations of Thailand, Myanmar, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Brunei, China, India, and Iran.
