Teqball – Managing Director

Managing Director – Teqball

Who we are

The Teqball Group is a fast growing business, which has carved out a niche segment of the sports  equipment market by creating an innovative sport (‘Teqball’) and patented multifunctional apparatus (‘Teqboard’). Teqball is played upon the Teqboard, and the Teqboard is also used for training and  developing numerous sporting skills.

The Group manufactures and supplies the highly-engineered Teqboard, which comprises a curved table and rigid net over which a ball is played, and has quickly established a strong brand and product image due to the high quality and innovative award-winning design. Teqball is a new, fast growing, football-based sport, with the long-term aim of becoming an Olympic  sport.

The Teqboard also provides an excellent training tool for professional footballers as well as amateur enthusiasts, and can be used to develop technical skills, concentration and stamina.

Teqball is the purest type of football, since there is no physical contact between the players, and therefore injury risk is largely reduced also positioning the Teqboard as a great tool for player and athlete rehabilitation.

Teqball is not football’s rival but rather its complement. Teqball enhances players’ confidence, perfects their passing techniques and develops decision making skills not to mention the so-called ‘first touch’ moves that are more than essential in modern-day football.
