Pakistan has celebrated the 75th anniversary of its independence by staging a four-day teqball tournament in the Peshawar District in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The Pakistan Teqball Federation organised the competition in collaboration with the Directorate General of Sports for the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Absar Welfare Foundation, a sporting non-profit working to empower youth, women and people living with a disability.

Approximately 30 male and 25 female players participated in the event with each player receiving their own official Pakistan National Teqball Academy kit.

Pakistan Teqball Federation President Mian Absar Ali closed the tournament with a speech and a ribbon cutting ceremony, with 75 ribbons being cut to mark each year of independence.

"FITEQ would like to congratulate President Mian Absar Ali, as well Wajahat Ali, Vice President of the Pakistan Teqball Federation, Jaffar Shah, administrator for the Federation; and Mr Rahat Mian, Chairman of the Absar Welfare Foundation, for their efforts in organising the successful event," a statement from the International Teqball Federation said.

"Pakistan’s passion for teqball continues to grow and FITEQ looks forward to continued growth across the country."

Pakistan, which was part of the British Indian Empire, secured independence in 1947.
