Hainan to organize China National Teqball Team to participate in the 6th Asian Beach Games
According to the Department of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports of Hainan Province, with approval by the General Administration of Sport of China, Hainan Province will be responsible for organizing the National Teqball Team to participate in the Sixth Asian Beach Games Sanya 2020 (hereinafter referred to as Sanya ABG).
According to the Competitive Sports Division of the General Administration of Sport of China, the Sixth Asian Beach Games will be held in Sanya from November 28 to December 6 this year. At present, the preparation work of organizing the sports competitions and organizing national teams is proceeding as planned. With the invitation by the organizing committee of Sanya AGB, due to the Teqball Team situation in the province, Hainan Province will be responsible to organize a team to participate in the Teqball Competition in the Sanya ABG on behalf of China.
Why is Hainan responsible for organizing China’s National Teqball Team? In the early delegation registration, the Chinese delegation did not register for the Teqball Competition because the sport has not become popular yet in China, and so there is neither a Teqball Sports Team nor a corresponding Teqball Sports Association or administration in the country. Considering that Hainan is the host of the Sanya ABG, sending local players to participate in the competition should attract quite a bit of local attention and promote Hainan’s beach sports development.
The Hainan Provincial Football Association will be responsible for organizing the National Teqball Team. According to the head of the Association, a total of 7 Men’s National Teams and 7 Women’s National Teams will participate in the Sanya ABG Teqball Competitions, and China’s National Teqball Team will consist of one Men’s National Team and one Women’s National Team.
The men’s National Team will be composed of Hainan college football players while the Women’s Team will be composed of middle school football players. Selected team members should have excellent football skills, and the team members will be chosen as soon as next week.
