What is Tejo?


From July 4 @Macondo Jardin - Sundays 11am-6pm

Tejo or Turmeque is the traditional sport of Colombia. Tejo is an Indigenous game which is more than 5 centuries old. The game involves two boxes of clay at either end of an alley, and sensors in the clay to receive the impact of the TEJO or heavy cast-iron round weight. The players throw the tejo at the clay and it it lands on a Mecha (sensor or gunpowder target), the loud sound means a win. Tejo involves drinking, eating and having fun in a group. It is a noisy game of considerable skill & heaps of fun. See more details here, thanks Wikipedia! How to Play Tejo
