The Teqball Championship in Budapest ended with two Hungarian successes. On Saturday, Ádám Blázsovics won at the solo category while on Sunday alongside with Csaba Bányik. Moreover, the duo of Csaba Bányik and Zsanett Janicsek won a silver medal.
At this year’s teqball championship in Budapest 161 players competed from 58 different countries in three different categories. Approximately 100 enthusiastic fans also visited the event. The tournament with $150,000 worth awards was opened by the legendary football player Ronaldinho who also introduced the brand-new and most modern Teqball LITE table. The championship was held at the sports centre of Vasas Fáy Road in the capital.
Teqball is becoming more and more popular among people, and it is definitely recommended to try out at least once as it is a good sport and excellent free time activity.
In the individual final, Ádám Blázsovics won with a fantastic game against the Polish Adrien Duszak and got the gold medal. The interesting fact about the team-games was that on Sunday the Bányik–Blázsovics duo got the chance to strike back at the Bogdan Marojevic–Nikola Mitro duo from Montenegro, who beat the Hungarian players last year.
After a long and tiring game, the Hungarian players got the champion’s trophy and scored two points against Montenegro’s zero. Blázsovics stated that it was an exceptional experience to win in their own home country, and he could not even dream about victory. After beating Germany and Romania, the duo of Bányik and Janicsek, unfortunately, did not succeed against the Brazilian Natalia Guitler and Marcos Viera and earned a silver medal at the end of the game.
The youngest competitor of the championship was the 9-year-old Maor Ankona from Israel while the oldest the 50-year-old Indrit Bejtaga from the same country.
Hungarian politician Gergely Gulyás also visited the championship and stated that Hungary is the mother country of teqball and everybody should be proud of Hungarian sports. Gulyás added that the government is keen on sports and its benefits and would like to emphasise them more in Hungary.
