What is a Team Hub?

Team Hubs serve as local competition venues for CYBATHLON events, bringing the thrill and excitement of the competition to diverse communities worldwide. While the central hub is located in Zurich, Switzerland, teams have the option to participate remotely by organising their own official CYBATHLON Team Hub.
