The competition will be facilitated by some personnel from the local government unit of Pikit and to be led by Board Member Dulia Sultan. It will be played at the Pikit municipal plaza on August 29, 2013.

How to play this long-established game is quite difficult but fun.

A long sturdy bamboo is stood-slanted, its tip carrying a pyramid shaped box suspended on top elevating around 30-40 feet from the ground. The box is wrapped with colorful cloth and tapestries.

Below the box are hanging ball-like figures which corresponds to how many points the player gets when hit. These are called Kaboka.

Kabokas hung underneath the pyramid must be hit by a rattan ball kicked by a sipa player. Once it falls, the sipa player gets the point.

Each team will consist of eight players, six that plays and two substitutes.

Around eight minutes are given to each team to hit as many balls as they can.

Details from the Office of Mayor Muhyrin Sultan, Sepa sa Manggis several years back was first observed in moslem royal weddings.
