Teqball has been officially launched in Beijing at an event attended by more than 1,000 people in the Chinese capital.
An exhibition of the sport took place during the Beijing Olympic City Sports Culture Festival, held to mark 500 days to go until the start of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
It was organised by the Beijing Olympic City Development Association (BODA), which has partnered with the International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ).
The FITEQ said it would continue "working closely together" with the BODA "following the successful launch of the sport in Beijing".
Former Deputy Mayor of Beijing and executive vice-president of Beijing Olympic City Development Promotion Association Liu Jingmin and Beijing Olympic City Development Promotion Association secretary general Fu Xiaohui were among those in attendance at the event.
The exhibition in Beijing comes prior to teqball making its Asian Beach Games debut in Sanya next year.
The Games had been scheduled for this year before being pushed back to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Sanya, located on the southern end of China's Hainan Island, is due to be the sixth host of the Asian Beach Games.
More than 2,000 athletes from more than 40 countries are expected to compete next year in 19 sports.
