International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) secretary general Marius Vizer Jr believes the sport's international "roadshow" has played a big part in keeping development of the sport going amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

FITEQ is due to visit countries in Europe and Asia this week as it continues its promotion of teqball overseas.

Vizer Jr will be joined by a team of sport instructors in Croatia and Serbia, where meetings will be held with senior sports officials in both countries, alongside training workshops.

Referee coordinator Norbert Augusztin and continental development manager Lilla Horvath will lead FITEQ delegations in Asia, starting in Kazakhstan where they will focus on coach and referee courses in Nur-Sultan and Almaty.

Horvath is then due to travel to Syria and Iran as part of the roadshow.

Hungary's Adam Bako, the world number 23 in singles, will spend two weeks in Tajikistan delivering coaching and refereeing courses in four different regions.

His compatriot Soma Fordos, the world number 43 in doubles, is due to return to Kuwait to finish courses which were cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The teqball roadshow has been a great way to continue the momentum of teqball’s growth throughout the pandemic," said Vizer Jr. 

"As the world slowly starts to return to normality, it is important that we keep travelling around the world to support our local partners with their efforts to develop teqball."
