The teqball world championship is about to begin, and according to the captain, in addition to the three defending Hungarian champions, the goal this year is for the Hungarian competitors to compete in the finals in all events.

If there is a Hungarian national team captain who can safely travel to a world championship, it is Zoltán Nagy, the captain of the Hungarian teqball team. At last year’s event in Gliwice, our team won three of the five events, and this year there is no question as to what the goal of the Hungarian team can be at the event in Nuremberg.

“Five Gold” – snapped Zoltán Nagy immediately when the MOL Team caught up with the captain (already at the World Cup venue) and opened with the question of what kind of performance he would be satisfied with in Nuremberg.

“As the sport becomes more and more popular, we should feel more and more pressure, but we cannot talk about such things. We have prepared with honor and await the start of the competition with confidence worthy of a contender. We have a chance to win in every event, we want to bring home as many golds as possible.”

The field is getting tighter

Zoltán Nagy said that teqball is being played very seriously in more and more countries, so the field is getting stronger and bigger. Although the members of the Hungarian delegation do not yet know the draw and the branches, the captain already knows which opponents to keep an eye on.

“In men’s singles, a Romanian competitor can be dangerous for the now three-time world champion Ádám Blázsovics, and in doubles, a Serbian duo is the big opponent,” said the captain. The Serbian duo is more than a dangerous opponent, as they defeated ours in the semi-finals last year. There will also be a change in our doubles, as Blázsovics’ partner this year will not be Csaba Bányik, but Ádám Bakó.

“The biggest opponents of our other individual champion, Anna Izsák, who won our first women’s world championship title, can be Brazilian and American teqballos, just as the situation is similar in mixed doubles. Of course, the minimum goal is to reach the final, as the final is broadcast live by Eurosport, you can also follow the World Cup from home.”

The atmosphere within the team is excellent

According to the captain, even though the number of participants is increasing, the World Cup is still quite a family event. “Everyone is on good terms with everyone, good friendships have developed between the competitors, which of course only last until the minute the competitors find themselves facing each other on both sides of the table.”

“We arrived after a long and tiring journey, we had a little relaxation together, we took a sauna, we are preparing with a little stretching and regeneration, but I don’t feel that anyone is nervous. Our preparation went well, everything is in place to be worthy of the Hungarian traditions of the sport in Germany,” said the captain confidently.

“For this, we received all available help from the Hungarian Teqball Association, everything was given to us for preparation, we only had to deal with the game, for which we are very grateful.”

“The field is already very strong, but if everything goes as we hope and teqball can really be introduced at the 2028 Olympics, it will boost the popularity of the sport even more. “More and more countries are interested in the game, and if the growing trend continues, it will be more and more difficult to perform successfully, but of course we will try to maintain Hungarian dominance,” added Zoltán Nagy.
