Can You Name This Sport?

Sepak Takraw? Kick Volleyball?  Footvolley? 

"Sepak" looks to mean kick and "Takraw" means woven ball, so I guess it works.  

It was late in the day near Sumbling Lama, Brunei, nestled in the mighty rainforests at an Iban village.  Here we found a group of young guys playing their nightly game of Sepak Takraw. We had a seat and watched.

I'm not quite sure what to say about the game but it looks challenging, although fun to watch!  The guys have some serious skill.  The serving and spiking looked painful but they managed to get it over the net with flare.

Anyway, here is a short video I put together to give you a better feel for the flow of the game.
