Teqball, the new football-based sport invented by Hungarians, an exciting and fast-paced cross between football and ping pong is taking Brazil and the whole world by storm.
The sport was invented by former professional football player Gábor Borsányi and computer scientist Viktor Huszár. Among its fans and ambassadors, Teqball counts Carles Puyol, Robert Pires and Christian Karembeu, as well as Luis Figo and Gianfranco Zola. CNN has just discovered the game and published a lengthy article about the new “sporting craze taking the world by storm.” The article says that former Teqball ambassador, the Brazilian former superstar footballer Ronaldinho is also a self-confessed addict, who sometimes even play up to six hours with the football-based game.
This is not the first time the Hungarian invention has received international recognition. Prince Albert II of Monaco tried the game in his palace last summer, while the Brazilian team, who are using the game as part of their training regime, have brought it to the football World Cup with them to Russia.
In 2016, Ronaldinho arrived in Hungary to popularize the sport and film a commercial for the Hungarian company.
