Cane Ball or Chinlone Court
The City Commission has approved a request from Huron Middle School students to apply for funding to establish an outdoor court and equip it for them to play the traditional Burmese game of Cane Ball, or Chinlone, on city-owned property. The proposal is to apply for $395 in grant funds through the Huron Youth Leadership Council to purchase the few pieces of equipment needed to set up the court. Chinlone is a historical sport of Burma, now called Myanmar, that is more than 1,500 years old and was once played for royalty. The court is 20-by-40-feet in size and includes a net, similar to one used for volleyball. The ball is six to seven inches in diameter and was originally woven from cane. The grant funds would be used to buy two sets of nets and balls. Poles for the nets would be set in concrete and anchors would be used to tie down ropes or straps to outline the court. The city is also being asked to store the nets and balls when not in use. Click here to watch a video about cane ball/chinlone.
