About Teqball

Teqball is a ball sport that is played on a curved table, combining elements of football and table tennis. Back and forth, the players hit a football with any part of the body except arms and hands. Teqball can be played between two players as a singles game, or between four players as a doubles game. The game is represented at an international level by the International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ). A number of world-class footballers have been attracted by the game, and after being added to the programmes for the 2021 Asian Beach Games and the African Beach Games, the sport is now aiming for Olympic inclusion.

Teqball Founders

Teqball was invented in 2012 in Hungary by three football enthusiasts: former professional player Gábor Borsányi [hu]; Hungarian businessman György Gattyán; and computer scientist Viktor Huszár.
