An Ancient Ballgame Makes A Comeback In Mexico

A traditional indigenous ballgame is among the pre-Hispanic exhibitions at an eco-archaeological theme park in Xcaret, Mexico.

Ulama is a pre-Columbian team sport played with a solid rubber ball that’s bounced off players’ hips. In olden times, the game is said to have decided the winners of wars.
