Sabis is a newly introduced sport, originated from Northern part of Nigeria and is been played mostly by the youth ranging from 15 – 30 years of age.
Sabis International Sport Federation is a governing body of Sabis that regulates all the affairs, operations and rules of the Sabis game.
The Game is played between two teams of six players on each side of a Sabis pitch, Each player on both sides holds a Sabis stick and the game is played with one Roller. Both teams are to ensure the roller does not fall on its side and stops rolling on their side of the court. The players acheive this by hitting the roller back and forth with the sabis stick, hands, and legs, until it falls on its side, and a point is awarded. The game is started by a member of a team serving the roller to the other team in a bowling movement.
The Roller is made up of recycled polyesters, compressed into a round and dense foam like composition.
The Flexible stick is heated carved out of bamboo sticks.
The pitch houses six players on both sides, with a serving area, and two playing areas on both sides.
