Representing Austria at #ewc2019rade is RuckTchouk-Traiskirchen, featuring left-shooter, Andreas Türk. The left-handed 21-year old has spoken to us regarding his tchoukballing career and his hopes for EWC 2019 in Radevormwald.
Nanguita Antonioli was introduced to Tchoukball in 2009 by current teammate Gaël Sieber and now plays for Swiss club La Chaux-de-Fonds. Two years later she found herself in the junior Swiss national team, progressing through to the senior squad soon after, and has represented Switzerland in the European Championships from 2014 to present, captaining their 2016 team. Antonioli’s club have placed second and first in the European Tchoukball Silver Cups in 2017 and 2018 respectively, so it is fair to say that the right-handed defender spends her life dedicated to this unique sport.
This week, we bring our attention to Jack Leitch, 28, right-shooter and a star in the making for the UK Super League team Bury Kings. Despite not yet playing for the UK national team, Bury St. Edmunds player Jack Leitch is certainly one to watch. The 28-year-old shooter first picked up tchoukball in 2011 as a way to blow off steam on a Friday night after lectures, playing centre pivot for Portsmouth University, before that idea was laughed off by teammate Andrew Cummins.
