International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) President Gábor Borsányi was among the delegation to visit Tashkent in Uzbekistan as part of the Teqball Roadshow.
Borsányi was joined in Tashkent by FITEQ chairman Viktor Huszár and general secretary Marius Vizer Jr.
The trio met with National Olympic Committee of Uzbekistan President Rustam Shaabdurakhmonov, secretary general Oybek Kasimov and vice-president Kamilov Aziz Yakubjanovich, who is also head of the Uzbekistan Judo Federation.
Uzbekistan's Deputy Minister of Sport Ravshan Sayfiddinovich Irmatov and Education Minister Sherzod Shermatov were also present.
The meeting focused on plans to aid the development of teqball in Uzbekistan.
Information was shared on the accessibility of FITEQ’s National Federation and club development programmes, which provide financial, infrastructural and educational support.
A number of FITEQ instructors also delivered practical workshops, helping start the journeys of registered players and qualified coaches and referees.
Vizer Jr and FITEQ’s education team then led sessions for the leaders of the newly-established National Federation on key areas such as education, governance, sustainability, social responsibility and competitions.
FITEQ’s visit to Tashkent coincided with the International Judo Federation (IJF) Grand Slam event earlier this month.
IJF chief media and marketing officer and International Esports Federation President Vlad Marinescu was welcomed to a teqball demonstration, while Borsányi and Huszár presented medals during the Grand Slam.
"The week we had in Tashkent is a perfect example of why we launched the Teqball Roadshow," Vizer Jr said.
"It is a country that already loves sport and it is open to welcoming new and innovative ideas.
"It is our job to show people in Uzbekistan that what teqball can bring is innovative, fresh and exciting.
"The meetings and workshops throughout the week have helped build strong foundations for teqball’s development in the country and we will continue to work closely with the National Olympic Committee of Uzbekistan as we look to recognise the National Teqball Federation.
"This is the key next step in spreading the sport across the country and we will be there to support our friends in Uzbekistan every step of the way."
The visit to Uzbekistan followed the successful launch of the Teqball Roadshow in Djibouti in February.
