EU TeqGames Open Day in Zagreb, by HASK Mladost

On May 18, 2024, European Square in Zagreb buzzed with excitement as over 120 children officially took part in the EU TeqGames Open Day. The outdoor event not only attracted participants but also piqued the interest of passersby, drawing them into the world of Teq sports. This vibrant day saw children aged 6 to 17, with 75% of the participants being male, engaging in a variety of Teq sports including Teqball, Teqvoly, Teqpong, Teqis, and Qatch.

Despite the challenges of hosting an outdoor event, we managed to include a short but impactful talk on nutrition. This session, coupled with the distribution of over 300 pamphlets, provided valuable health information to participants, parents, and curious onlookers.

In collaboration with the Croatian Teqball Association, the event ran smoothly from 10 AM to 12 PM. It was a fantastic opportunity for visitors to learn and play Teq sports, and the enthusiasm was palpable. Within an hour after the event, two individuals had already expressed interest in training, highlighting the immediate impact of the Open Day.

Approximately 100 children and teenagers took part in the games, with around 50 adults also joining in. Experts were on hand to explain the benefits of Teqball for physical and mental health, and to offer advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Informative talks emphasized the importance of incorporating sports into daily routines. The nutritional leaflets distributed at the event provided practical advice on balanced diets, healthy meal examples, and tips for both children and adults.

These collective efforts not only promoted Teq sports but also contributed to the overall health and well-being of the community.

To further boost our outreach, we produced a series of dynamic promo videos featuring highlights from our Open Days events. The European Multisport Club Association (EMCA), as the coordinator, created an engaging video showcasing the excitement and community spirit of these events, and shared it across all their social media platforms. HAŠK Mladost contributed with two impactful videos: an interview explaining what Teqball is, how to play it, and how to participate in the project, and a short, energetic promo video. Other partners also made their own videos and photos from the Open Days, all of which are available on their social media accounts.

We invite you to check out the photo gallery and the promo video from the event to experience the energy and excitement of the EU TeqGames Open Day in Zagreb!
