Why Tchoukball?

Why promote Tchoukball?

When we are asked "what are the possibilities with our sport?", we always give the same answer: ENDLESS . Tchoukball is still a minority sport, but with the right backing, it could play a major role in the sporting lives of thousands of people.

Consider the following frequently asked questions:

What is different about Tchoukball to many other sporting opportunities?

The key difference between Tchoukball and other sports (for example, football) is ethics. In current sports, role-model players fake fouls and do generally whatever they can to give their team the advantage. This is unethical and is not looked upon favourably by the majority of observers.

It is also written in the 'Tchoukball Charter' that advertising and sponsorship from Alcohol and Tobacco companies are not permitted. With Tchoukball, you can be safe in the knowledge that your organisation's brand name is associated with an ethical and friendly sport.
 

 

Will Tchoukball appeal to anyone?

Yes. Unlike for example, rugby and basketball, Tchoukball players don't need to be tall, short, light or heavy to play in their positions.

Our game's motto is 'A Sport For All', and it literally is that. Our players come in all shapes and sizes for one simple reason: play only passes from one team to another when a team tries to score. There are no interceptions, no tackles, and no physical contact between players.

Yet the beauty of this sport is that it can remain fast and spectacular at the same time; an international standard player attempting to score will run into the frame at high speed jump up to 3 metres lengthways and 1.5 metres high and throw the ball at up to 100 kilometres per hour at a defence positioned 3 metres away! Even at this level, there are very few injuries.

 


 

What groups of people will it be most likely to appeal to?

Any you like! Tchoukball can appeal to players from 7-70 years old of both sexes, many ethnic groups, cultures and backgrounds so your organisation's target audience is unlikely not to be represented.
