WARSAW, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- Hungary dominated the Teqball World Series as the tournament ended in Krakow, Poland on Saturday.

In the women's singles final, Hungarian Krisztina Acs defeated Brazilian Rafaella Fontes for the gold, while Adam Bako and Lea Vasas from Hungary were too strong for their compatriots Csaba Banyik and Zsanett Janicsek in the mixed event final.

However, Banyik was teamed up with Balazs Katz to win the men's doubles gold.

Brazilians Natalia Guitler and Fontes won the gold in the women's doubles while the men's singles gold went to Romanian Apor Gyorgydeak.

That was the second edition of the Teqball World Series, as the previous tournament took place in Paris in March this year.

Teqball, invented in Hungary, is a football-based sport played on a specially-curved table. It can be played by two players (singles game) or by four players (doubles game). Every player or team is allowed to return the ball with a maximum of 3 touches by any body part, except for the hands and arms.
