Teqball is set to make its debut in a major multi-sports event after being added to the programme for next year's Asian Beach Games in Sanya.
The decision to add the fledging football-based sport, played on a curved table, to the programme in the Chinese resort was announced during the 38th Olympic Council of Asia General Assembly by its President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah here today.
Teqball has received another boost in its effort to be recognised around the world with the news that it is to be a demonstration sport at this year's African Beach Games and African Games.
The decision was taken by the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) Executive Board during a meeting in Rabat.
ANOCA will also recommend to its next annual general meeting that teqball, a new football-based sport played on a curved table, is recognised by them and its members.
