Chinlone is the traditional sport of Myanmar. Chin lone = cane-ball in Burmese. Traditional Chinlone is woven from cane or rattan but now some made of plastic. We play chinlone not for competition but for style and technique how you handle the ball with your head, chest, shoulder, lap, legs. But the hands cannot be used. Not more than six 6 people can participate in the game but can participate. The main object of chinlon is to keep the ball in the air as long as possible by tossing it with all parts of the body except the hands. And play Chin Lone to all players around a circle . Especially play by man at evening. When in Myanmar you will see this game play on the ground beside or on the street in Urban or rural area.


In ancient man play Chin Lone at village near river in the evening while girls/woman are coming to carry water with pot. This is the kind of attraction from girls. And they show their tattoo on their lap/thigh especially the picture is peacock's eye features. By playing Chin Lone we can gain healthy and also more friends. So try it with your friend when u got free time in the evening.

Hi Yan Linn Aung,


Do you play Chin lone yourself ?

I would like to try, but I'm not sure I have enough foot skills to do it :).


Since it is not a competitive sport, are there some exhibition game you can go to see the best players ? Is it organized regularly ?
