Takraw. Usually a sport that boys learn to master in the countryside, when they move to Bangkok to work or study, their pass time remains Takraw. Seen as a working class sport however, very few permanent courts exist in the city’s public spaces. Players often need to rely on friendly bosses to let them set up courts in factory compounds, and very often players convert disused car parks, spaces bellow expressways and any kind of abandoned land into courts; using old cement filled tires, and salvaged metal rods, or even old road signs to hold the net together, sharing the cost. Players know that they might only have access to a space for a limited time as previously abandoned construction projects often get taken over or car parks are converted to new condominium projects. Planning ahead of this, like urban nomads, they make sure they have other places in mind, to insure they can enjoy the gravity defying sport everyday after work.
