I guess I do NOT (luckily) spend enough time on social media watching ‘pop trends’. When it comes to sport, other than faithfully, always watching the SuperBowl in its entirety, my main (if not only) passion is cricket. Yes, I will occasionally watch some Rugby. That is it.
I learned about Teqball when I read that Sri Lanka has created a Website for the sport! Ah? I had Google it. That is how I learnt about it.
I watched the above video. It is OK. I prefer ping-pong played by the Chinese! Teqball seems too contrived & I may be wrong but I do not think any other body part can match our hands in terms of putting speed on a ball in this type of close quarters. Yes, of course, the feet can kick very hard. But, you can’t do that in this setting. I love the speed of table tennis, yes, ping-pong at speed.
Well, I just wanted to make sure YOU have heard of Teqball. Now you have. No thanks necessary. That is why I am here.
