The International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) and the Polish Teqball Federation has organised a referee and coaching course in Błonie.

The courses were attended by 30 people in the Polish town, including 10 women.

Training sessions took place over two days on September 11 and 12.

"We are very satisfied with the course, which was attended by people from many different parts of Poland," said Michal Listkiewicz, Polish Teqball Federation President.

"This is especially important because these new referees and coaches will inspire other people to get involved in teqball.

"In turn, this will significantly accelerate the process of implementation and development of the sport in many places at the same time."

The FITEQ said the event began with theoretical and practical training under the supervision of professional referees and coaches.

Participants then completed a test to secure their qualification as Level C referees and Level Intro coaches.

It is hoped the coaches will now share their knowledge with other prospective referees and coaches in their regions.

The FITEQ and Polish Teqball Federation said this will help to grow a network of qualified teqball officials.

A further training course for referees and coaches will take place in the coming months.

Three teqball tables were installed for the course in Błonie, a town located close to the capital city Warsaw, and will now be permanent additions in the town.

The FITEQ has praised the growth of teqball in Poland, which comes prior to the sport’s appearance at the 2023 European Games, which will be hosted in Kraków.
