Teqball is a popular football-based sport. The game requires a ball to be played on a curved table regarded as the Teq table. This table-top game is a hybrid of Ping-Pong and Soccer. Teqball is recently included into the 2021 Asian Beach Games and the African Beach Games. The sport is relatively young and was invented in 2012 in Hungary.
The credit of the invention of Teqball goes to Gábor Borsányi (former player), György Gattyán (Hungarian businessman) and Viktor Huszár (Computer Scientist) who all are avid football fans. The International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) regulates and governs the game. The Teqball World Championships is the highest level of the competition organized by the FITEQ.
Teqball is majorly played either as singles or a doubles game that is between two or four players. But it can be played between 3 players (Canadian doubles) or even by more than 4 players as well in a “round-the-table” format and can be played indoors, outdoors or on the beach. The players can use any part of their body to strike the ball except their hands and arms.
