Surr is a popular traditional sport which is often played by the regional menfolk residing near Ayodhya
in the northern part of India, particularly Uttar Pradesh. Two teams participate in this game while each team must possess four players atleast. Surr is played by dividing the ground into four equal quadrants and one of the teams assemble in the initial quadrant. Meanwhile, the other team approaches the borders of the quadrant, near the lines of defence.
Rules of Playing Surr
The game of Surr is based on certain stringent rules and regulation which includes two teams in a particular game. Every game must be played with a minimum of four members. Both the teams must be well-equipped with an equal quantity of players. The game is played over a rectangular shaped ground and two perpendicular lines of defence are drawn across the central part of the ground. As the game is commenced, Team A gathers in the first quadrant and the adjoining quadrant's lines of defence are approached by Team B. The players of Team A aim to make an entry into the other three quadrants made, but in doing so they should not be touched by any players belonging to Team B. Players of Team B must strive to prevent Team A players from achieving their goals. If any Team A player is touched by a player of Team B, the former must step out of the Surr game.
The other surviving members of Team A must make an attempt to access every quadrant and finally gather together in the quadrant prior to making an entry into the next quadrant. As soon as a new quadrant is filled by all the surviving players of Team, they emit an universal shout of "Bol Den Goivan Surr!".
