Sepak Takraw Federation holds trials to select players for SEA Games

SINGAPORE: Sepak takraw players from 10 clubs are vying for spots on the national team to represent Singapore in the SEA Games in December.

15 players were chosen on Saturday from more than 30 hopefuls.

The chosen 15 will join the current Sepak Takraw National Team, bringing the team’s total strength to 25.

Still, only 12 will make the final cut for the team when selections are made in June.

At a media conference on Saturday, the Singapore Sepak Takraw Federation (PERSES) said with its current training regime, it is optimistic about bringing back a medal from the Games.

Shamsuri Hasber, national team manager at Singapore Sepak Takraw Federation said: "In preparation for the coming SEA games, PERSES has collaborated with countries including Indonesia and Malaysia for our centralised training with them, so that our players, our national players can be exposed and improve in their performance for the coming SEA games."
