Estepona hosts Tchoukball championship

  • Tchoukball is recognised by UNESCO as 'El deporte de la Paz' ('The sport of Peace')

La Rada beach will host Spain's Tchoukball Playa championship on 21 September.

Tchoukball is a version of handball created to avoid injury by physical contact, leading to its recognition by UNESCO as 'El deporte de la Paz' ('The sport of Peace').

As a result of its contact-free nature, it is increasingly being enjoyed in schools, despite remaining a minority sport.
