They’re showing the matches live by the way. That’s a playlist.

Here's how the Sepaktakraw events were set :

 

Men's Event 

 

Hoop

Team Doubles 

Team Regu

Regu

 

 

Women's event 

Hoop

Regu

 

 

Rules : Phillipines can enter all events. All other nations can participate in 2 events each in men and women. :facepalm:

 

Similiar to AG 2018, but I rather prefer Quadrant event than Hoop.  Hoop is not bad but it is not true Sepaktakraw. The action you get to see in hoop is 0.001% as compared to ' real Takraw ' events.  What do you say @Griff88 @Olympian1010

First off, lame rules for entry, and not giving women an equal number of events. I too am not a huge fan of hoop. It’s quite boring, and like you said, not true takraw. I would have preferred doubles to quadrant though. I like the doubles format. However, nothing beats good old regu. Not a big fan of these Team events either. I’d prefer a team event where there are three matches: one double, one regu, one quad. The perfect SEA Games and Asian Games Sepaktakraw program would be:

Double

Regu

Quad

Team

Hoop (Only in SEA Games)

 

Men and Women would compete in all events. Wouldn’t mind the Team event being Mixed Gender with this order: W Double, M Regu, W Regu, M Double (if needed), Mixed Quad (if needed)

Wait, what? This is probably the "main" sport at the SEA Games (i.e. the best of the best in the world can compete), and the organizers still impose restrictions on which nations can enter teams in which events? Disgusting.

we have the same rule at the Asian Games, they just don't want Thailand winning all gold medals ! (and yes I know this is stupid)

 

btw these events are all unnecessary , at first it was just Regu (regu means "team") then they got bored and created other events like doubles, quad, team doubles etc ! and they are all similar ! at least hoop takraw is different, yes it's long and boring but at least different.

 

in a normal world there should be only 2 events for this sport, Men's Regu and Women's Regu.

It doesn’t matter because :MAS and :THA are just so much better than everyone else. Occasionally maybe :MYA:LAO:INA can compete. :KOR actually not half bad either. Korea is a country that’s always good in most sports. Their the only non-traditional country to be good in both Kabaddi and Sepaktakraw.
