Sepaktakraw has long remained one of Asia’s best-kept secrets. Often described as a spectacular blend of volleyball, football, martial arts and gymnastics, Sepaktakraw is, in reality, a sport unlike any other. Astonishingly visceral and explosive, it is, at the elite level, one of the toughest games in the world. Demanding lightning reflexes, precise control and fearless, gravity-defying leaps, Sepaktakraw delivers some of the most intense sporting action. Historical records point to early versions of the sport being played in 16th century Thailand, at the Malaysian royal court a century, or 100 years before that, and even across a wide swathe of the Philippines, Brunei, Myanmar, Indonesia and Laos as far back as the 11th century.
The SepakTakraw League is Malaysia’s elite, domestic sepaktakraw league, featuring the best players competing against one another in a 8 team round-robin competition. Players competing in the SepakTakraw League have represented their nation and state, and are recognized around the world as some of the best ever to play the game. The SepakTakraw League was brought out of a partnership between Asia Sports Ventures Pte Ltd (ASV) and the Malaysian Sepaktakraw Association (PSM).
