As announced by the European Tchoukball Federation (ETBF) yesterday, the winning bid was from TuS Oeckinghausen, in collaboration with us at the DTBV. Behind the scenes, the Organising Committee has already started preparing for the 2019 European Winners’ Cup in earnest.
Bidding for the premium Tchoukball event in the European club Tchoukball calendar opened at the end of March, after closure of the 2018 edition in Traiskirchen, Austria. The process was open for 3 months, to allow National Federations (NFs) to consider applying.
The Czech Republic finished 4th in the World Beach Tchoukball Championships today with a tense and often close match against number 3 seeds Macau. The Czechs started the match very strongly and it was only in the final period that the Macau team developed a lead.
Hungary became one of the International Tchoukball Federation's (FITB) newest members at the 2017 FITB General Assembly in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Members of the FITB in Europe are automatically members of the ETBF. Hungarian President Anita Kunos thanked the General Assembly for the election of Hungary and spoke to the ETBF afterwards.
This weekend the European Tchoukball Federation (ETBF) celebrates it’s first birthday since being founded on 29 March 2014 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. It has been a busy year for the first Executive Committee of the ETBF. In August 2014 we ran the European Championships in Radewormwald in Germany thanks to our partners from the German Tchoukball Federation. During this event, we worked with the hosts and the International Tchoukball Federation (FITB) to negotiate the best deal for European teams whilst ensuring the competition was professionally managed.
