FITEQ officially recognised by TAFISA
FITEQ has reinforced its commitment to equal opportunity as it signed the Brighton plus Helsinki Declaration on Women and Sport and was officially recognised and admitted as a member of The Association For International Sport for All (TAFISA).
FITEQ President and Inventor Gábor Borsányi, signed the Brighton Declaration during a signing ceremony in Tokyo. The Declaration was developed and established by the International Working Group (IWG) on Women in Sport and provides a roadmap to support a fairer and more inclusive system of sport for women and girls. In signing the Declaration, FITEQ has committed to upholding the 10 principles that enable women and girls to freely and safely participate, compete and build careers in sport.
FITEQ’s commitment to inclusivity was further reinforced when TAFISA announced the federation as a member during its General Assembly in Tokyo. TAFISA has more than 320 members from more than 170 countries, comprising of non-governmental and governmental organisations. It aims to use sport as a vehicle for change and create a better world through Sport for All by 2030.
Gábor Borsányi said: “Teqball was created as a sport for all. It has always been our mission to ensure that teqball can be played by anyone, no matter their gender, age, nationality or ability. That is why it is so important to us that we do everything possible to make sure teqball is inclusive and accessible.”
