Passage 1Sepak Takraw
Malaysia’s national sport sepak takraw (sepak means kick and takraw means woven ball). The sport of sepak takraw is more than 1,000 years old. Originally, native Malays played it. Later, the sport spread to other countries in Asia, including Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Today, it is one of the most popular sports played in the Asian Games. There are also sepak takraw clubs in North American and Europe.12- What is the main purpose of the article?
Sepak takraw is like both soccer and volleyball. In this fast-moving game, players move the ball like they do in soccer and volleyball. Two teams (of three players each) compete by hitting a small ball across a net (like they do in volleyball). Players can use their heads, feet, shoulders, or knees to pass the ball to the other team. But like in soccer games, players cannot use their hands. Playing sepak takraw is a little like playing tennis, too. Like a tennis match, there are three sets in a game. If one team drops the ball, the other team gets a point. The first team to get 15 points wins a set. The winner of two sets wins the whole game.
