Tchoukball is not just a regular sport. It endeavors to impact the society as a sport with a difference.
Dr. Hermann Brandt, a Swiss biologist, invented this sport in the 1970s, to offer the world of competitive sport a new paradigm to sportsmanship. This sport imbibes integrity and promotes social harmony. Dr. Brent was concerned that the
world of sport has become overly concern with champions and winners that it has started to lose its collective purpose of playing as a team which is the primary quality for building a harmonious society. He put together all of the good elements of sports and
came up with Tchoukball.
The rules of '3's - maximum 3 passes within the team, 3 steps taken with the ball, 3 seconds to hold the ball, makes it an excellent
sport for teambuilding and imparting life skills to people of all ages.
Mr. Adolf Ogi, Special Counsellor to the UN Secretary-General for Sports in the Service
of Development and Peace endorsed it - “That is why we support the development plan for Tchoukball established by the International Union of Tchoukball. It should help to better convey throughout the world message of universal peace which transcend
the athletic aspects of the sport.” (Oct 2001)
