About this project

Teqball is a new sport equipment and a new sport based on football. The equipment is a fun training tool for both professionals and amateurs to develop their technical and concentration skills, along with their stamina. The sport will bring real football to the homes of people. Teqball is played on the revolutionary new equipment: the Teqboard.

Teqball Double Gameplay
Teqball Double Gameplay

 The Teqbox add-on to Teqball will be the world’s first equipment, which will be able to objectively measure the technical football skills of a player in a fun-filled way.

Teqball is simply the cleanest form of football. There is no physical contact between the players and according to the official rules of the sport, it is forbidden to touch even the equipment. As a consequence, the risk of injury is very low. No brutality, no fake dives.

Teqball is played on and around the Teqboard, which has been developed with a scientific approach after years of mathematical and physical calculations, and empirical tests. All parts of the Teqboard were designed in a way that the ball always bounces out to the players. This forces the players to handle and control the ball every 2-3 seconds. As a result, a very high number of touches can be reached by the players within a very short period of time.

Teqbox will use state-of-the-art stereo computer vision and event processing technologies to track ball and player movements in real time. It will be able to automatically check whether players are playing according to the rules. It will also calculate scores and precisely measure different metrics to assess the skills of individual players.

The metrics that the Teqbox will calculate can form the basis of individualized training programmes to improve specific skills. Such training programmes will be developed in co-operation with professional football players, so that Teqball players will be able to download these programmes to their smartphones / tablets and compare their development not only to their friends', but also to international superstars.

Famous football players and coaches, the Koeman Brothers talk about Teqball:

We believe that the TeqBall-TeqBox combination will not only be a very entertaining sports game, which can be played by amateurs and beginners, but also a pro skill assessment and training device that will absolutely thrill professional football players, clubs, youth academies, fitness centers and hotel chains around the world.

Teqball has various gameplays for families and kids / elderly: See TeqTennis and TeqDodge video:

Teqball can be used for warm-up, cool down, rehabilitation, air-air ball handling and ball control, it improves decision making, develops stamina and its easy learning curve means successful moments in the game come early to even beginners. Teqball helps developing the first touch of a player. Playing the game improves one’s basic ball handling skills, which makes Teqball optimal for youth development as well.

From the famous Van Patten actor family, Jimmy talks about Teqball:

We thank Shane Black, the brain behind great movies we all love, that as the writer/director of the most futuristic movie, Iron Man 3, he still considered Teqball to be the sport of the future:

Join us at a TeqParty in Los Angeles / London. Famous people and well known football players / coaches are invited as seen in our videos and fantastic atmosphere and service provided:

Our primary GOAL is to complete the development of the Teqboard and the Teqbox technological add-on. The funds raised are directed towards perfecting the state-of-the-art motion sensor system of the Teqbox; and to work on the design of the Teqboard.

Our secondary goals (stretch-goals) after the completion of the primary target include the development of supplementary products such as TEQ mobile applications, and the implementation of our marketing (involvement of more famous football players) strategy. Pledge so we can see the best players of the world play Teqball against each other! Developing the Teqboard requires us to build and test it using different materials to be able to offer the safest and most durable product. Furthermore, we intend to make it a mobile equipment, which can be easily moved and relocated even by a single person.Any funds raised above the set goal will be channeled towards our stretch-goals.

We would like to thank our research and development team of Teqball / Teqbox, who are the guarantee of the success:

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges Teqball faces with respect to our development project are that unforeseen costs and delays may occur while reaching for our goals. These may happen during the design, testing, and / or building phases of the development, which Teqball tries to avoid through employing an expert team of scientists dedicated to our product, and by careful planning.

We understand that in the 21st century product life-cycles are becoming shorter and shorter as customer needs are changing on a daily basis. Sports and sporting equipment change continuously to cater to all players and fans. We believe that satisfying customer needs can only be done by continuous research and development by our company. We have to remain flexible and adaptable, as Teqball can only reach longevity and success through research, flexibility.
