A mix between football and table tennis, Teqball has become wildly popular since it came along in 2014.

The game, played in singles or doubles, takes a lot of skill and has become ultra-competitive for pros.

Players can also hone their skills alone, turning one end of the table up so the ball rebounds back to you.

A number of teams – Arsenal, Chelsea, Ajax, PSG and Real Madrid among them – have Teqball tables at their training grounds.

And Luiz, Marceloa and Costa are some of the growing number of players who have now had them installed at home.

All three were seen practicing on their tables this week during the lockdown.

David Luiz is very keen to show he is still working on his ball skills at home, twice sharing videos of him using the table.

In the first he is playing against his agent Gustavo Santana using two balls – going back and forth between a larger and smaller ball.

He then posted another video, this time swapping out a regular sized football for a tennis ball.

Fellow Brazilian Marcelo shared a video of him doing a long fitness routine in his garden, part of which saw him use the Teqball table to go through drills.

Juventus and Brazil star Douglas Costa shared a video that was slightly more fun – teasing his dog while juggling the ball on the table.
