Rules of TEQBALL

Teqball can be played with any soccer balls used in football; however, size 5 is official and recommended. Teqball can certainly be played by rules created by the players, but the official rules of the game are very simple:

  • A teqball match consists of a best-of-three sets game.

  • Each set is won when a score of 20 points has been achieved by one player, a change of serving being mandatory after each fourth point.

  • Every player has two attempts to complete a successful service. In serving, the ball must always bounce behind the service line (it is also a successful service if the line is touched).

  • It is forbidden to touch the ball twice consecutively with the same body part.

  • The players may return the ball using any body part except their hands, by touching it a maximum of three times.

  • In doubles, the team members must pass the ball at least once to each other before returning

  • it to the opponent’s side of the table by touching it a maximum of three times.

  • If the ball bounces on the edge of the table and changes direction, it is considered an ‘edge ball.’ In this case, the rally shall be repeated (this only applies if no-one touches the ball before it bounces on the ground).

  • While playing, neither the equipment nor the opponent shall be touched.

  • These rules make this sport tremendously spectacular and suitable for even professional football teams for training purposes. Teqball can be played by 2 players (singles game), by 3 players (Canadian doubles), by 4 players (doubles game) or even by several more players similar to the ‘Round-the-table’ game in Ping Pong. On our Teqball Smart tables individual games and training sessions can be conducted.
