Organisers said there will be 8 categories – men's and women's team, singles and mixed doubles sepak takraw, plus men's and women's loop takraw.
Dr Chalerm Chaivacharaporn, president of the Sepak Takaraw Association of Thailand, said the challenge system would be implemented this year to ensure fairness and preempt protests.
He said Thailand will not compete in mixed doubles, in order to give others chances of winning medals.
Mono 29 will televise three matches live – men's and women's singles finals starting from 4 pm on August 30, women's team final from 4 pm on August 31 and men's team final (Kings Cup match) on September 1, also from 4 pm.
