Happy Holidays!

As we come to the end of 2021, we take a moment to reflect on what turned out to be another Covid-challenged year. While international championships were canceled/postponed some events were able to take place, especially a lot of local/ in-country events.  We are happy that our federation partners around the world were able to find ways to continue promoting minigolf sport during this difficult period.

We hope that all of our minigolf family is able to take some moments at the end of the year to spend time, however possible, with family and friends and to acknowledge personal achievements from the year.  We look forward to 2022 and being back on the mini-links with everyone!

International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Ghana Wheelchair League

December 3, 2021 is the the annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons, which was first proclaimed in 1992 by the United Nations. The observance of the Day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

With minigolf we are proud to have a sport that can so easily integrate persons with disabilities. From the World Deaf Championships to wheelchair leagues and handicapped accessible courses, minigolf is accessible to a range of individuals of all ages and abilities. We hope to continue to expand how we can provide programming for persons with disabilities and welcome suggestions to help us further our goal.
