Sepak Takraw is a traditional sport which originated from Southeast Asia commonly known as Kato. Sepak Takraw is similar to volleyball as it uses a woven ball allowing players to only use their feet, knee, chest, and head instead of their hands to pass and hit the ball. Currently, the sport is available at Scheffer Recreation Center as a summer program.
Parks and Recreation has secured funding from the NFL Super Bowl Host Committee, Minnesota Humanities Center Legacy Grant, and Ramsey County for construction of Sepak Takraw Courts. The first outdoor courts will be at Marydale Park and Duluth & Case Recreation Center. In partnership with Sepak Takraw of USA and Saint Paul Parks Conservancy, the city is completing a fundraising campaign for the final court improvements. Click here to donate!
