Tchoukball - Research game

The game Tchoukball is from Switzerand and it was created by Hermann Brandt in 1970. The game was created because Hermann thought that sports should not just be used to form champions but to just be creative and create a more humane society. Hermann is also an artist and now lives in Canada.

It is still played today, there is a main competition called World Tchoukball Championship. Tchoukball is popular in some countries but not so much in others. There are many competitions for Tchoukball. Though the game was created in Switzerland, there are competitions all over the world.  There is the European World Cup, Asian World Cup, South American World Cup and the Tchoukball World Cup Championship.

Each team is allowed to score on both sides of the field. In the game you are allowed to have 12 players on each team, of which seven may be on the court at any one time. To score a point you have to be an attacking player and it has to bounce off the frame, (The frame is similar to a trampoline) and land outside the D without getting caught by the defence team. Believe it or not, defenders are not allowed to intercept any passes from the attack team. You are only allowed to take three steps and you are not allowed to make more than three passes before you shoot at the frame.

Hi Annliz. Its Marcus Thomas from the U.S. again. I had never heard of this game until I read your blog post. I have played sports my whole life. I have mostly played American football and ran track. Tchoukball sounds very interesting. I plan on looking into it more and seeing if there are some youtube videos available for me to watch.
