About the club
Our tchoukball club has two mixed teams: Leeds Galaxy and Leeds Cosmos. We compete across various competitions throughout the year at both regional and national league levels.
Tchoukball is a mixed gender sport where there is no contact or interceptions. The sport originates from Switzerland and was created to reduce injuries in sport. Tchoukball shares many similarities with other sports such as basketball, handball and netball, however, what makes tchoukball stand out is that points can be scored at either end of the court. You shoot at a frame similar to a trampoline, there is a "D" that surrounds the frame and points are scored when the ball lands outside of the "D" following a shot.
Tchoukball is a unique (and fun!) sport to play, you don't need to be a tchoukball expert to play and we are passionate about being a very welcoming and friendly club. We don't have any requirements for you to join our club - in fact a lot of our members have never even played Tchoukball before they came to Leeds Beckett!
