Now residents of 50 regions of the country play the national Russian lapta. Since 2023, it has become a compulsory discipline in physical education classes at the stages of primary and secondary education.

From cricket, lapta is distinguished by the number of players and the standards of the field: it must be rectangular and with special lines so that participants can run and return to their place. They play with a ball and a bat, the press service of the university recalled.
