FITEQ Launches National Challenger Series To Kick-Start Return Of Competition

FITEQ has launched an exciting new competition concept titled ‘The National Challenger Series’, which was designed to support National Federations, clubs and players with the return of the competitive teqball events during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

The creative new competition series, will enable athletes to compete for World Ranking points and prize money, whilst also providing athletes with a clear qualification pathway for the next Teqball World Championships. There will be up to two phases of events, with National Federations or registered clubs in each country having access to financial and educational support from FITEQ to assist with the event organisation.

FITEQ General Secretary Marius Vizer Jr mentioned “We’ve been working extremely hard over the past few months to find the best solution for bringing back teqball events in a safe and responsible way. National Federations and clubs have harnessed the teqball spirit during the pandemic by finding innovative ways to keep people playing the sport we all love.”

Series will be a valuable experience in event organisation for National Federations and clubs, leaving a long-lasting legacy in countries all over the world. South Africans can now also look forward to getting involved with a federation set to launch on our home soil led by a football legend who once wore the goalkeeping gloves for Bafana Bafana.
