Juego de PelotaAquí se practicaba un juego de carácter sagrado relacionado con el antagonismo de los dioses, con la aparente rivalidad de fuerzas naturales. En la construcción se observa una cuidadosa orientación norte-sur del eje principal de la cancha, delimitada al norte por una plataforma baja y por el Sacbé 3. En la actualidad sólo se conserva parte de uno de los aros de piedra, empotrado sobre el talud del edificio occidental. En el Mexico antiguo, la manera de jugar variaba
según la región, tanto en cuanto al número de jugadores, como en la
cantidad de puntos necesarios para ganar. Se jugaba con una bola de hule
macizo y se usaban protectores para la cintura y las rodillas. La pelota podía ser golpeada con cualquier parte del cuerpo, excepto con los brazos y las manos. Esta antigua práctica sobrevive en algunas regiones del pais: tal es el caso de la pelota mixteco, en Oaxaca, y del Ulama en el norte de
México.Maya-Yucateco:Te'ela' ku beeta'al ka'ach jump'éel k'uyen báaxal yaan ba'ax u yil yéetel u ba'ate'il le k'ujo'obo', yéetel u ba'ate'il xan le yóok'ol kaabo'.

A careful north-south orientation of
principal line of the court can be observed in the construction, with a low platform and Sacbé 3 forming the northern boundary. Actually, only part of one of the stone rings still exists, embedded into the slope of
the western building. In ancient Mexico, the rules of the game varied according to the region in relation to the number of players, as well as
the number of points needed to win. It was played with a large rubber ball and protectors on the waist and the knees were used. The ball could be hit with any part of the body except the arms and hands. This ancient practice
survived in some regions of the country, such as is the case of the Mixtec ball
game in Oaxaca and that of the Ulama in the north of Mexico.
