 Beach Kabaddi

Beach Kabaddi is another form of Kabaddi which was included as a major discipline in the 1st Asian Beach Games held at Bali in the year 2008 in both the men & women section. Beach Kabaddi is played outdoors on the beach sand with teams consisting of six players each, with four players a side and two substitute players. The play field measures 11 x 7 meters [Men] & 10 x 06 [Women] divided into two equal halves by a midline.  The duration of the match is of two halves of 15 minutes each with a break of 05 minutes [15 – 05 - 15]. In Beach Kabaddi, there is no out or revival of players as in the regular Kabaddi. There is no baulk line, bonus line and lobbies in Beach Kabaddi. Beach Kabaddi gained unprecedented popularity due to the easy to comprehend rules and the thrill of the sport with no equipment required since Beach Kabaddi is played on natural beach surface outdoors.

The Regular, Indoor & Beach Kabaddi have different set of rules, different logistic requirements, different playfield requirements and varied number of players. What they share in common, however, is the public appeal since all these forms of Kabaddi have the enticing features of Skill, Thrill & Dare. All these forms of Kabaddi are governed by the Asian Amateur Kabaddi Federation [AAKF] & the International Kabaddi Federation [IKF].
