Former professional tennis players Henri Leconte (France) and Gilles Muller (Luxembourg) joined forces last Friday as part of the BGL BNP Luxembourg Open to raise awareness about bone marrow donation.

Whilst the Luxembourg Open was in full swing at the Kockelscheuer, Docler Holding was supporting leukaemia patients through the Plooschter Project with a game of Teqis, the latest addition to the Teqball (football-based sport) range. The event began with a friendly tie-break between the two players in front of the ever-growing crowd on Friday afternoon.

Teqis is played on a curved Teqball table and suitable for both indoor and outdoor play. The game is played in eight points and sharpens the agility of the players on a play area similar to ​​a traditional court. Only two rebounds in singles and three rebounds in doubles are allowed. Henri Leconte and Gilles Muller were able to test the benefits of the sport in a doubles match for tennis professionals as well as for young people.

Finally, members of the public of all ages had the chance to meet the players during an autograph session organised on the court.
