What is Tejo?


Starting in Spring 2021 @Macondo Jardin - Sundays 11am-6pm

Tejo or Turmeque is the traditional sport of Colombia, an Indigenous game, more than 5 centuries old. The game involves two tilted 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
