Challenge yourself in Myanmar’s #1 sport
ChinLone (cane ball) is an immensely popular neighbourhood game, in which men with tucked in longyis use only their legs and feet to toss a rattan ball around the circle of 5 to 6 participants. Played with skill and grace, it sometimes looks more like a dance performance than a sports game. “It’s so popular because we welcome players of all ages, men, women and encourage them to stay fit without any challenging movements” shares one of the players.
Chin Lone must live
50 years ago, sports lovers from the neighbourhood came together and collected funds to buy a piece of land from the government and build this communal sports centre. With its free trainings for kids, Sanchaung Cane Ball field is known for its talent pool. Many Sanchaung players got to compete at the Aung San Stadium, the largest stadium in Myanmar, where the national league football matches are played.
