Sepak takraw was initially played by the ruling elites of the 15th Century’s Malacca Sultanate. Back then it was called takraw in Thai or sepak raga (literally “kick rattan ball”, because the ball is made of rattan) in Malay and played mainly by men and boys standing in a circle, kicking the ball back and forth between them. Sepak Takraw was originally evolved from the hacky sack type practice and then evolved further into competitive sport over a net on a court. More about the histroy at Wikipedia.
