Hungary and Brazil claim titles at Teqball world championships

Hungary showed it remains the dominant force in teqball, a hybrid sport mixing football with table tennis, winning the singles and doubles world titles. Adam Blazsovics easily won the singles title and teamed up with Csaba Banyik to take home the doubles gold in Budapest. Hungary’s dominance comes as little surprise as the country invented the sport, which had its first tournament five years ago and its third world championships this year. Teqball, the brainchild of former professional soccer player Gabor Borsanyi and computer scientist Viktor Huszar, is played on a downward-sloping, knee-high table and involves spectacular long kicks, dribbles and explosive headers.
