EP2: Teqball, That's A Sport?

Founded by three Hungarians in 2012, Teqball is a sport that combines elements of table tennis, football...and to a certain extent, sepak takraw. One that has been regarded as the 'fastest growing sport on the globe with footballing icons such as Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappé, and Roberto Carlos among the current and former players who have their own customized teq tables. At the recent SEA Games in Cambodia, teqball made its debut as an exhibition sport with the Malaysian contingent taking home two bronzes in both the men's & women's singles category. Helmed by the Malaysian Teqball Association who has plans to further introduce teqball to the Malaysian mass with a goal of making the country a powerhouse in the region - and then, the world. MTA president KJ Siva joins us this week as we explore more.

That's A Sport is a brand new monthly series where we look to explore and discover some lesser known sport around the globe.
