About Lelo Burti

Lelo, also known as Lelo Burti, is the traditional ball game of Georgia, a small republic in the Caucusus Mountains between Europe and Asia near Turkey and Russia that is newly independent. Lelo is possibly why Rugby Union is so popular in Georgia, and is their Native Sport, currently undergoing a revival. [Reference: 2-3]
