Reviving a 3,000-year-old Ancient Ballgame

Long before basketball and soccer, ancient Mayans were hitting the park to play rounds of Mesoamerican ballgame. Dating back to 3000 B.C., the game was played with a solid rubber ball that could only be hit by a player’s hip. Today, in Hidalgo, Mexico, a group of athletes are determined to bring back the ancient ballgame and honor the traditions of their ancestors.

The primary source of jianzi is a Chinese ancient game called cuju of the Han dynasty 2000 years ago. also known in English as a 'hinese hacky sack' or kinja.

There are several variations of the game, such as trying to keep the feathercock in the air until an agreed target of kicks (e.g. 100) is reached, either alone or in a pair. In circle play, the aim may be simply to keep play going. In all but the most competitive formats, a skillful display is a key component of play. There are 2 informal games in Chinese JJJ games using the same middle net: Team game having 3 players on each side & Half court game using just a half court for double player game only.

A Visual History of Sports

The first recorded sport in history was spear throwing, which arose in 70,000 BC out of a need for ancient hunters to practice their skills. Bowling was the first known ball game, appearing in Egypt in 3,200 BC; later, there was Pitz, played by the ancient Maya in 2,500 BC, followed by Episkyros, known as “common ball” to Greeks living in 8th century BC.

Long before the Olympics, there were the Tailteann Games, which the ancient Irish held around 1,800 BC. At the first recorded Olympic Games in 760 BC, there was only one event: a footrace.

Chuiwan - China Ancient Golf

Chuiwan Website:
Chuiwan (Chinese: 捶丸; pinyin: Chuíwán; literally ball-hitting) was a game in ancient China. Its rules resemble modern golf.
The book Dongxuan lu (东轩録), written by Wei Tai (fl. 1050--1100) of the Song Dynasty, describes how a southern Tang official teaches his daughter how to dig goals in the ground and drive a ball into them. The game became popular by the Song Dynasty; and a work called Wan jing (丸经 -- literally ball-treatise) of the Yuan Dynasty was specially devoted to it. The latest documents about chuiwan in China are from the two paintings of the Ming Dynasty from the 15th century. There is a colour image of the mural painting still preserved on the wall of a Water God Temple in Hongdong, Shanxi. A Chinese scholar suggested the game was exported to Europe and then Scotland by Mongolian travellers in the late Middle Ages. This animation is produced by Mission Hills China, the World's No.1 Golf Club.
