Celebrating 10 Years of Tchoukball

Tchoukball (pronounced chook-ball) a non-contact team sport which originated in Switzerland in the early 1970s, started in Singapore exactly 10 years ago in 2006.

Today it is one of the fastest-growing team sports in Singapore, and is played by about 2,000 enthusiasts on a regular basis these days, double the number in 2009.

Indeed, with various tournaments taking place across schools and at the grassroots level throughout the year, including the on-going Singapore Tchoukball League, the game has flourished in the local sporting scene.

The Tchoukball national men’s team and women’s team, ranked amongst the top 3 in world rankings, have done extremely well so far and placed Singapore in the spotlight with their achievements.

At FBT, we are delighted to support the development of the sport by partnering with the Tchoukball Association of Singapore (TBAS) as its official apparel partner since 2011.

Here are some photos of various Tchoukball teams we have kitted for local and international competition in the past year:
