The International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) has donated 56 tables to the Teqball Federation of Ghana (TFG) in a bid to help develop the sport in the African nation.
Tables were delivered to the TFG at a ceremony in the nation's capital, Accra and were acquired by FITEQ in collaboration with the Hungarian Embassy in Ghana.
Kofi Poku, the President of the TFG, said that the arrival of the tables will help establish and popularise the sport in the nation, as reported by Graphic Online.
Poku added that the National Sports Authority will work with TFG to distribute the tables to the various regional heads.
"Indeed, the arrival of the tables will go a long way to promote and develop the sport, we couldn't have started without it," said Poku.
"You can't play it without the tables.

"The sport has come to stay."
Teqball has grown across the world, including in Africa, where the sport can be found in nations such as Nigeria and Eswatini.
Ten new members were recently accepted by FITEQ, growing its membership to 80 countries and territories.
National Teqball Federations in Venezuela, Iraq, Papua New Guinea, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Uruguay, Ukraine, South Africa, Thailand and South Korea were all granted membership by FITEQ earlier this month.
