The statues of Apollo, Artemis and Leto stood in a part of the Agora , and it was around these statues that the Spartan youths, both boys and girls, performed their choruses and dances in the honour of Apollo. On the last day grown men also performed choruses and dances in the theatre, and during these gymnastic exhibitions they sang the songs. The main way in which the eiren were involved in the Gymnopaedia was through ball playing and the participants were known as sphaireis, or ball-players. The ball playing consisted of the players attempting to hit each other with a ball. In addition, some features of the Gymnopaedia combined the ball playing with boxing. The Gymnopaedia was a polis event and religious festival, which involved the entire society, including girls and women.
