|Message of the newly elected Secretary General of the Asian Federation Mr. Arash Pooyanmehr.
In many nations Minigolf Associations are members of their National Sport Federations, and it is in this capacity that I look forward to the Asia Minigolf Sport Federation (AMF) working together with the Iran sport organisation, as Iran has been awarded the honour to host the Asian Open Minigolf Championships, on Kish Island, in 2014.
Minigolf is played both as a leisure activity and a serious sport all over the world, with a large number of championships played every year, including World and Continental championships, World and European Championships for juniors, and the European Cup for National Club Champions.
Member nations of the AMF organise national championships and there are also a large number of other ‘Open’ and ‘Club’ tournaments played in member countries each year.
Minigolf is administrated worldwide by the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF), and there are also continental federations. The WMF is a member of Sport Accord, the General Association of International Sports Federations - an umbrella organisation for all sports.
No doubt that Minigolf as a sport can bring peace and friendship to us.
