    Sipa means kick and the game Sipa is all about kicking the ball. The mechanics of the game is similar to volleyball where the court is divided by a net. The ball is a woven bamboo or rattan that is kicked over the net and the opponent kicks it back. It is a fast game just like table tennis and it looks tedious to the players. Unfortunately it is not popular anymore although there are still practitioners of the sport.

    I have seen one game of sipa on tv and it is a quick game because the ball does not bounce. It like badminton where the shuttlecock is always in the air. Unfortunately the Sipa as a sport is dying in favor of the more popular sport of basketball and football. But lately volleyball is getting popular.
