Dhopkel, a game popular in Assam is similar to Kabbadi. Dhop is the name given to a rubber ball that two teams throw across a central line into each other`s courts. Each team sends a player into the opponent`s court the aim is to catch the ball his team throws and make his way back to his team without allowing the opponents to touch him to earn points.
