Hungary played host to the International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) first-ever combined able-bodied and Para teqball competition.

The Budapest Teqball and Para Teqball Cup saw players compete in a men’s doubles contest, two Para singles classes and two inclusive doubles categories, featuring teams made up of one able-bodied and one Para player.

"This was a historic occasion for our sport and I want to congratulate everyone who was a part of it, especially the athletes," said FITEQ President Gábor Borsányi.

"Teqball is truly a sport for all and the level of play from the Para teqball players was an inspiration for people all over the world.

"We will use the success of this weekend’s event to continue the positive path Para teqball is on and look to engage new players in the world’s newest Para sport every day."

Reigning world champions Csaba Banyik and Adam Blazsovics of Hungary defeated French duo Julien Grondin and Hugo Rabeux 12-8, 11-12, 12-2 to capture the men’s doubles crown.

Serbia’s Nikola Mitro and Bogdan Marojevic secured the bronze with a 12-5, 12-10 victory over home pair Bence Forgacs and Matyas Odnoga.

The PTBSC 1 singles, which is for athletes permanently requiring the use of crutches, was won by Zsolt Keresztes from Hungary with Romania’s Stefan Dogaru taking silver and England’s Jamie Oakey winning bronze.

Attila Laszlo from Hungary claimed gold in the PTBSC 2 singles, which is for athletes with a prosthesis, while Liam Burbridge of England bagged silver and Greece’s Vasileos Panidis secured the final podium spot.

The two inclusive doubles classes were tightly contested with Keresztes and Martin Csereklye and Burbridge and Adam Bako taking home the titles.

"It is rare to see the combination of sport and Parasport at the same event but at FITEQ it is something we want to make a regular occurrence," said FITEQ sports director Matthew Curtain.

"Our sport is for everyone and by hosting athletes and Para athletes for a joint event helps us spread this message to the world."
