Baanda is the name of a game played by boys only in this community. It is popularly called Banoo.
It involves different body postures so the community believes that it is not suitable for girls.
The game is played on a flat surface, usually, on the ground with a small hole at the centre of the court.
In the past, the game was played while the boys herded cattle. Today, it is played any time for leisure.
Once the targets are set, all players place their balls around the hole.
The one whose target is the highest, starts the game.
One scores by successfully hitting the ball(s) of other players, followed by his own ball landing into the hole.
If he insists on remaining in the game, the rest of the players exclude him by going away to create another court.
They all answered, "Yes!"
One went on to say, "It breaks boredom and we discover friends as we play."
"This game helps us to resolve disagreements on our own without running to our parents all the time. We learn to accept and to follow rules."
