Singapore Men's & Women's TCHOUKBALL Team
for the World TCHOUKBALL Championship 2019!
The Singaporean team has achieved consecutive number two rankings in the world and finished consistently at the top three at regional competitions.
In the recent 8th Asia-Pacific Tchoukball Championship held in Singapore from 6th to 8th July last year, the Singapore Women’s team finished second to win silver, while the Men’s team managed to beat Malaysia to win bronze. With this, the teams qualified for the World Tchoukball Championship (once in 4 years event) in KL, Malaysia.
After 10 months of Training, this coming August, 7-11 (the National Day Weekend), We will be competing against the world's best Tchoukball teams in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We hope to make it to the Finals for both categories and fly the nation's flag up high!
For this trip, it's mostly self-funded and many of us are still students or have just entered the working society. The 24 of us are required to raise the full amount of money needed to cover trip expenses/competition fees, even though the Tchoukball Association of Singapore(TBAS) is helping us to subsidy partially, we still feel the financial burden. Thus, we are reaching out to willing supporters who can help us turn our dream opportunity into reality.
The Tchoukball Association of Singapore (TBAS) is a registered society under the Registry of Society and does not receive any funding from SportSG. It has been self funded since 2007 by organising Learn to Play Tchoukball programme for schools and organisations and using these surplus to subsidise the players to represent Singapore in international competitions.
TBAS is managed by a committee of volunteers and 2 part-timers in the secretariat to keep cost low in order to support the players as much as possible.

Help us reach our goal, and support our dream!
Tchoukball is a Swiss game that combines volleyball and squash, and is typically played between two teams of seven players in a basketball court.
It was invented in the 1960s by Swiss biologist Dr. Hermann Brandt who wanted a non-aggressive game that would reduce the risk of injuries and accidents for the players.
To maintain its fair play, tchoukball has a no-contact rule which bars players from touching their opponents.
Tchoukball players can also score at both ends, unlike many other sports. To score, you have to bounce the ball off a rebound frame and ensure that the ball is not caught by the opposing team. Given that points can be scored at both ends of the court, players are therefore required to follow dynamic defensive and attack strategies.
