The Game of Chase
Kho Kho is a tag sport that develops a players speed, agility and decision making. Players enter in batches of 3, and avoid being touched by members of the opposing team. It’s nothing like you have ever played before, come to one of our sessions and try it out!
Teams are made up of 9 players and 3 substitutes. Each team has a ‘Running Turn’ and a ‘Chasing Turn’.
When ‘Chasing’, 8 players sit along the centre line, facing alternative directions. The 9th Chasers (Active Chaser) aims to catch an opponent, or gives Kho to transfer the status of Active chaser to their team mate.

When ‘Running’, players enter in batches of 3.
Runners can run in any direction, however Chasers cannot. Once a direction is chosen by a chaser, they must commit to that direction or give Kho. When 3 of a batch are out, the next batch enters.
This is repeated till time is up.
Established in 2014 we aim to promote the sport in a variety of ways. We can train those interested in playing as part of a group, community or organisation, assist with organising tournaments and provide officials to referee the game professionally for competitions held in England.
