The ball that they used weighed 8 kilos and and often the looser was sacrificed the ball court is very well preserved and you get a sense of the games taking place as there are seats arround it.

Just plain interesting. You really start to appreciate how they played soccer in a different way, and with an 8 pound ball. Life or death depended on winning and losing.

very interesting although (in my opinion) not as good as that at Chichen Itza. The staff keep the site in very good condition

Lovely grounds. Most ball courts are only rocks. This one has grass and make the appearance even more inviting. You can imagine they were just there yesterday playing ball. What a treat Copan ruins is.

Part of the Copan ruins, the ball court is well maintained and climbing it is not restricted. Another delight of the Copan site.
