Teqball

Introduction

Teqball is a new football-based sport, 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 your skills you can improve on this specially-curved board. All you need is an opponent at the other end of the Teqball table and the game can begin! If you can juggle a ball three times, you can excel at teqball as well. Teqball is the purest type of football, since there is no physical contact between the players, and therefore injuries resulting from impacts or rough tackling can never take place in the game or during practice. Moreover, the players cannot touch the table either, according to the official rules, which further reduces the risk of injury.

Main Rules of Teqball

Teqball can be played with any soccer balls used in football; however, size 5 is official and recommended. Teqball can certainly be played by rules created by the players, but the official rules of the game are very simple. These rules make this sport tremendously spectacular and suitable for even professional football teams for training purposes. Teqball can be played by 2 players (singles game), by 3 players (Canadian doubles), by 4 players (doubles game) or even by several more players similar to the ‘Round-the-table’ game in Ping Pong. On our Teqball Smart tables individual games and training sessions can be conducted
