Welcome to CESTOBALL Federation of India

Our History

History of the game

Cestoball is an Argentine sport created by Professor Enrique Romero Brest, the father of Argentine physical education. He began to design his rules in 1897 after participating in a Congress of Physical Education in Holland. In 1903 he presented the sport to the Ministry of Education and Public Health as part of a Physical Education program for secondary school teaching, which was approved on March 17, 1903, the date on which Cestoball Day is currently celebrated.

Between 1910 and 1922 the game received several regulatory changes. In 1924 the first organized competitions were held, which subsequently led to the organization of intercollegiate championships, by the National Institute of Physical Education (INEF). In 1930 the First Argentine Cestoball Championship was organized by the INEF. In 1932 the Argentine Federation of Volleyball and Cestoball was created, presided by Romero Brest, in order to federate the teams and regulate the practice of both volleyball and Cestoball.

In 1952 the Argentina Cestoball Confederation was created, becoming independent of volleyball in 1952. In the following years the game spread throughout Argentina, and several American countries (Paraguay, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador).

In 1986 it was decided to boost the ball to the basket internationally and in addition to making regulatory changes that led to a faster sport, its name was changed to Cestoball. The International Confederation of Cestoball is created.
