WHAT IS TEQBALL?
Teqball is a football-based sport, played on a specially-curved table (the Teq table), which is attracting a new generation of athletes and amateur enthusiasts (teqers), whose ambition is to develop their technical skills, concentration and stamina. The sport, which was created in Hungary in 2012 is a truly gender-equitable game, as the rules define that teqball shall be played between two (singles) or four players (doubles), irrespective of gender. The sport follows a points-based scoring format and can be played on various surfaces such as sand, acrylic or indoors. Teqball allows players a maximum of three touches before returning the ball to the opponent, so if you can juggle a football three times, you will excel at teqball as well.
Teqball is the purest use of a football, with the rule of no physical contact allowed between the players, or between the players and the table, helping eliminate the risk of impact injuries.

THE TEQBALL TABLE
Teqball is a new sports equipment, which is perfectly suitable for professional footballers as well as amateur enthusiasts whose ambition is to develop their technical skills, concentration and stamina. However, it is not only our skills we can improve on this specially-bent board. All we need is an opponent at the other end of the Teq table and the game can begin! The net is solid and thus the ball bounces back from it, so this way the concept of uninterrupted games is no longer a dream. The structure of a Teq table, aligned with the rules, does not allow luck or chance to interfere with the game; players can only rely on their skills and abilities.
Teq tables have three types: Teq ONE, Teq SMART and Teq LITE, all are made to meet our exacting standards of quality and durability. Teq ONE, Teq SMART and Teq LITE tables are ideal sports equipment for public places, hotels, parks, schools, families, football clubs, leisure centers, fitness centers, beaches, etc. The tables are disabled-friendly, the variable rules help everyone to find the sports to play on them! Teqball is not about luck; the best players always win.
