Teams from India, China, Australia, Europe, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, Thailand and Indonesia will be participating in the event.

Odisha has been the champion in this sport and the team, representing India, on Sunday grabbed the first position in the triples event of Taiwan International Gateball Championship 2018.

The team, comprising Satish Prusty, Ranjan Kumar Patra, Biswaranjan Mishra, Dwaipayan Pattanaik, Niranjan Mangaraj, put up an impressive show after six years and also reached the quarter finals in the team event.
