Updated: Jun 21, 2018
Whether you’re a Filipino who wants to relive childhood memories or just an expat who wants to learn traditional Filipino games, you are welcome to join Palarong Pinoy, a Filipino sports fest on Friday, July 20 at the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC).
The one-day sports fest will be part of the ongoing Dubai Sports World (DSW) and feature traditional games such as patintero and tumbang preso.
Families and individuals are invited jolen, luksong tinik, luksong baka and a new segment called ‘Pinoy Sky Dive.’
Patintero is played by two teams. There will be a rectangle on the ground with two horizontal lines and one long vertical line at the center.
Tumbang preso, meanwhile, can be played by 10 players, including the guard. With just an empty can and a pair of slipper, you’re good to play.
Jolen or marble game is played to collect the most marble.
Luksong tinik is a game to test player’s agility and dexterity by jumping off on human’s feet and hands.
Luksong baka is almost the same with luksong tinik but this time players will have to jump over a person who is in a kneeling position.
