Olympic Council of Asia
The International Teqball Federation (FITEQ) was officially recognised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) at the continental governing body’s General Assembly in Jakarta in August 2018.
It followed a recommendation by the OCA Sports Committee, whose members were treated to an impressive display by FITEQ - both on and off the field of play.
Before a meeting of the Committee at the Hotel Mulia Senayan, four players gave an outdoor demonstration of teqball.
FITEQ vice-president Viktor Huszár provided information about the sport on the sidelines.
After the demonstration, the Committee members and FITEQ officials moved into the meeting room for a formal presentation.
Since being officially recognised by the OCA, a teqball training course has been organised at the Fujian Chuanzheng Communications College in Fuzhou in China.
Other teqball activities in Asia include the donation of a table to Birzeit University in Palestine and the introduction of the sport to Turkmenistan at the International Sport, Tourism and Science Exhibition in Ashgabat.
Huszár believes teqball's ambition of one day featuring in the Olympic Games could become a reality in 2032.
Upcoming events include international tournaments in Asia, Africa and a beach games in South America.
Officials also hope it will be included on the sports programme for the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou in China.
Oceania National Olympic Committees and Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa
FITEQ is due to present at the 2019 Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) Annual General Meeting and Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) General Assembly.
This is with the view to being officially recognised by both ONOC and ANOCA and serving as a demonstration sport at a future edition of the African Games.
In November 2018, the National Teqball Federation of Madagascar was inaugurated in Antananarivo with tables donated and a demonstration performed.
The following month, teqball was introduced to Nigeria through an event in Abuja.
