How Many Players in Kabaddi?

Kabaddi is a team sport with seven players on each side. One player, called the “raider,” tries to touch opponents and return to their side without getting caught. If they touch opponents, their team gets points. If caught, the other team scores.

In each team, there are two groups: raiders and defenders. Raiders go on the attack, while defenders try to stop them.

Teams also have substitute players, around three to five, in case someone gets out.

Here’s how the game works:

  1. The game starts with a coin toss. The winning team decides if they want to attack or defend first.
  2. The attacking team sends a raider into the opponent’s half. The raider has to keep saying “kabaddi, kabaddi, kabaddi” without taking a breath.
  3. The raider tries to touch opponents and return safely. If they do, their team scores. If caught, the other team gets a point.
  4. The game continues until all players from one team are out. The team with more points wins.

Kabaddi is a fun and inclusive sport suitable for everyone, regardless of their size or abilities. It’s easy to learn but tough to master, making it enjoyable for people of all ages around the world.
