Langdi Taang

Langdi Taang is a traditional Indian sport that is similar to hopscotch. It is a team sport played between two sides, with 12 players a side, and three extra players. A match lasts 36 minutes, and is played in four innings of nine minutes each. The team that wins the toss defends. The chasing team sends chasers who hop on one foot and try to tag the defenders. The chasers can step out of the ground as long as they keep on one foot. The defenders are declared out if they step out of the ground or commit a line fault. The team that tags most defenders is declared the winner.

The game helps develop agility, speed and stamina as well as strategic thinking. Having to hop around means that the muscles in the legs are strengthened. Moreover, motor skills and good overall coordination is needed, especially if the game is being played on a competitive basis.
