Not sure exactly where to post this as it's not strictly travel-related but I'm still hoping someone has thoughts on this
So we are a group of undergraduate students who are taking a course about the history and politics of Africa. For our final assignment we were given the topic "Sports in Africa" to write an essay on (and present at an upcoming Nordic-African forum so there's added incentive to do this well!).
We've decided on the theme "street sports" and how they can be used to create social spaces. We've decided to feature football (soccer) and skateboarding but as this is a quite massive essay we feel we could add one more sport. As "Street sports in Africa" yields quite a lot of football related search results I wonder if some locals or the commenters here who've traveled to Africa could help us out.
So the question is, do you know of any "street sports" other than those two that are popular in any African country? And if so, do you know any specific location (or community) where this sport is practiced?
All help is much appreciated!
