Hungary monopolised the gold medals at the first European Teqball Tour event of the year in Skopje as Ádám Blázsovics and Zsanett Janicsek triumphed in the men's and women's singles tournaments and the country's pairs won all three doubles titles.

The first European event of the calendar year will act as ideal preparation for the 2023 European Games, with teqball scheduled to make its debut at the multi-sport event in Kraków-Małopolska later this year.

Blázsovics met Romanian Apor Györgydeák in the men's decider and held off a comeback to triumph 12-11, 6-12, 12-10 in the North Macedonian capital.

He beat Adrian Duszak 2-0 in the semi-finals while Györgydeák secured a 12-11, 3-12, 12-5 win against Blázsovics' compatriot Csaba Bányik.

Bányik then beat Duszak in straight-sets to seal the bronze medal.

"In the last month I had a lot of training and as I get my confidence from practice it helped me," said Blázsovics.

"I am especially happy that I got revenge in the semi-finals at the World Championships against Duszak, it haunted me since then.

"Not to mention that my tactics, to be more aggressive at serves worked well.

"For this season's goals, this was a perfect beginning and I want to finish each event on the podium."

World number 10 Janicsek won against the odds in an all-Hungarian women's singles final as she beat Gabriella Kota 2-1.

She fell to a narrow 11-12 loss in the first set but upped her game in the remaining periods winning them 12-10, 12-4 to end victorious.

Anna Izsak then claimed the last place on the podium with a 2-1 win against countrywoman Boglarka Nagy in another all-Hungarian match-up.

"I had very strong opponents in the knockout stage, so luck was not with me during the draw but I am very happy that I won because this year my focus is on the singles and I want to qualify to the World Championships in this category as well," said Janicsek.

Janicsek then found herself with another gold medal as she and Lea Vasas beat fellow Hungarians Krisztina Acs and Gabriella Kota 12-11, 12-9.

Vasas teamed up with Adam Bako for another Hungarian gold, this time in the mixed doubles against France's Amelie Julian and Hugo Rabeux with a 12-6, 12-10 scoreline.

The final gold went to Bányik and Balazs Katz of Hungary in the men's doubles as they beat Serbia's Nikola Mitro and Bogdan Marojevic 7-12, 12-4, 15-13.
