PISA'ASIN

Pisa' Asin is a traditional game of the Melanau community other than Pisa Tibow and is still favoured until now. The Pisa' Asin game is suitable to be played by children and often played during celebration festivals.



Pisa' Asin is divided into two versions that is 'asin tu'u' and 'asin bibung'. In 'asin tu'u' the defending players can only catch players that are inside the playing court area only. They cannot catch players that play outside the playing court.



In 'asin bibung', the gatuong (middle player) is allowed to chase players who play until they cross the end line of the playing court. But the positions of players who play cannot be out of the edge lines or the head line of the playing court. Players who run straight to the end of the playing court can be chased.
