Takraw Australia @ CDU Open Day
If you’re in Darwin, make sure you look for us at the Charles Darwin University Open day on Sunday the 25th of August (Casuarina Campus). Unfortunately we won’t have a sepak takraw demonstration because our players are overseas training for the upcoming sepak takraw world championships, but nevertheless come on down, grab a brochure and have a chat! Whether you’re interested in learning to play sepak takraw, looking to get sepak takraw started at your school or sporting club, or want to talk about business opportunities – we’d love to see you!

King’s Cup 2013
The 2013 King’s Cup Sepak Takraw World Championship has been announced!
The event will be held in the Convention hall of Central Plaza in Udon Thani, Thailand from the 16th to the 22nd of September, 2013.
The King’s Cup is currently the most prestigious and hotly contested sepak tournament in the world, with over 24 countries competing for the top spot. With competitions for Doubles, Regu, Team, and Hoop takraw, you can bet there will be a lot of amazing takraw over the course of the week-long event.
Last year Australia competed in the 3rd division Doubles and Regu tournaments, and won bronze medals for both! This year, we will be aiming to improve that result. We are currently looking for new players to expand our team for King’s Cup, so if you are a sepak takraw player living in Australia and you want to see what international competition is like, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Briefing the Federal Minister for Sport
The Australian Sepak Takraw Association welcomed the opportunity to meet with Senator Kate Lundy, Federal Minister for Sport and for Multicultural Affairs. We enjoyed a brief discussion about ways to grow sepak takraw in Australia – from grass roots to elite, connecting with our Asian communities and neighbours. We look forward to further conversations with the Senator. We’ll keep you posted here and on facebook with further updates.
