What is Tchoukball?

Tchoukball was a sport invented by Dr. Hermann Brandt (1897-1972) an eminent Swiss physician and physical educator in the 1960s. His scientific background and his experience in the practical application of scientific knowledge led him to develop the sport of tchoukball.

Dr Brandt wrote a book titled From Physical Education to Sport Through Biology, and presented his now-famous paper Critical Scientific Review of Team Sports. For this work he won the coveted Thulin Prize, a world competition on the theory of physical education organized by the International Physical Education Federation (FIEP).

Why was tchoukball invented? The Principles of Tchoukball:

Dr Brandt's focus was to create a team sport that will promote the principles of

1) Being competitive without encouraging aggression.

2) Avoiding violent confrontations and increasing self-confidence.

3) Developing the ability to concentrate.

4) Promoting problem-solving and anticipation as well as physical ability

5) Teaching teamwork and building positive social behavior, teaching principles of physics.

Advantages of Tchoukball

Tchoukball is an excellent sport for teambuilding and imparting life skills to youth. It is a sport that teaches RESPECT for all players, and increases SELF-CONFIDENCE in individuals.

It is a sport that is primarily non violent and non-aggressive with no interception, no defense or no interference allowed designed to promote enjoyable matches between individuals as between nations.

Tchoukball is an unique sport that avoids the tense competitiveness which exist in many team sports. This is a game that allows each player to express him/herself within their own physical and intellectual capabilities. It is a game where players of different capabilities can play together without a weaker (or even handicapped) player being played out of, or left out of, the game.
