Teqball BUCS Conference Partners Page

Teqball International Ltd

Teqball will be present throughout BUCS Conference 2019, showcasing their fantastic and innovative footballing offer to the sector. If you wish to speak to their team before the Conference, please contact UK Sales Manager Andy Moore. 

Teqball is a new football-based sport, perfectly suited for professional footballers as well as amateur enthusiasts whose ambition is to develop their technical skills, concentration and stamina. 

It is not only your skills that can improve on this specially-curved board. All you need is an opponent at the other end of the Teqball table and the game can begin! If you can juggle a ball three times, you can excel at teqball as well. 

Teqball is the purest type of football, since there is no physical contact between the players, and therefore injuries resulting from impacts or rough tackling can never take place in the game or during practice. Moreover, the players cannot touch the table either, according to the official rules, which further reduces the risk of injury. 

On the Thursday of BUCS Conference, BUCS will also be joined by long standing BUCS partners and BUCS Awards favourites Take That Photo as well as BUCS Partners National Student Esports and Classic Miniatures.

Want to come to BUCS Conference 2019 as a Partner?

BUCS Conference is the primary opportunity in the year to access 450+ sport decision makers and budget holders from Universities across the UK. The conference has a comprehensive content and social programme. Offering delegates the opportunity to share best practice, stay informed with new initiatives, network (formally and informally) talk to our conference sponsors regarding their products/service and celebrate the sporting year.
