    Sepak takraw tournament at Lied?

    I'm sitting here watching a Sepak takraw tournament at Lied and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it? It's a legit tournament with teams from different colleges. No one really wants to talk about it with me however.

    It's a crazy sport if you've never seen it.

    First rule of Sepak Takraw Club is...you do not talk about Sepak Takraw Club.

    Wow - I'm surprised. I actually know about the sports - very interesting and the athletes are usually really good, but again, I'm surprised that there is a tournament here because it's a sports in South East Asia.

    I am a few years out of college, but does it really surprise you that that a South East Asia sport is popular at the University?

    It really is for me because I don't think it was widely played in certain countries except probably Malaysia and Thailand. I could be wrong, though. So, it's not equivalent to baseball in the US, where kids growing up playing Sepak Takraw.

    I understand that there are a lot of SE Asian students in the US (including @ ISU - probably when I was there, there were ~1000 students from SE Asian countries) but it's surprising - I thought that they would play soccer or badminton.

    Holy nuts... I would pull my groin and dislocate my neck if I tried to play this... I might have an advantage with extra floppy knees (2 ACLs) and some serious floor padding, but damn that looks hard...
