Bashi is an ancient game played only in the Maldives and is the most popular sports played by women . It was traditionally played with a hand-woven bashi (ball made from coconut palm leaves) by two teams of 11 players.

During the time of the country’s first President, Mohamed Amin Didi,  a modernised version of the sport by using a tennis ball instead of the hand-woven ball was introduced . Later the coconut tree wooden bat was replaced with a tennis racket and now the sport is a favorite throughout the country.

Bashi is played on a tennis like court. A woman is facing backwards to the opposite team, stands with her back to the net and serves a tennis ball over her head backwards. On the other side of the net a team of girls try to catch the tennis ball. Broken fingers are very common.
