Youth national teams are entitled to participate, most likely with max. 12 players per nation. It will be a strokeplay event for individual youth girls and youth boys. A team competition for teams of four (with one result cancelled each round) will be included. We are also considering the possibility to

Announcement regarding the World Deaf Minigolf Championships 2021, Bamberg, Germany

The current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic situation seems to be slowly improving, but there are still travel restrictions and lockdowns in some parts of the world. It is very difficult to imagine World Championships being played in July, even in a reasonably restricted manner with adjusted schedules and accompanying events around the championships, such as opening and closing ceremonies, etc. Travel restrictions regarding entry into Germany are currently being relaxed, but visitors from some potential participating countries would still possibly have to undergo quarantine on entry at present. It is also unclear what size of events can take place in the city of Bamberg in July. Many teams also face quarantine upon return from Germany. Furthermore, our participant survey of May 17 revealed that there is reluctance to participate. We believe that not all nations and individuals who wish to participate in the World Championships will be able to do so in July. The organizers would suffer significant losses with a smaller field of participants and at the same time incur higher costs by ensuring a safe championship.

Therefore, the World Deaf Minigolf Championships 2021 is hereby cancelled.

The organizers have confirmed their intention to hold the event in 2022 and so we are looking forward to the World Deaf Minigolf Championships 2022 in Bamberg.

Announcement regarding the Youth World Championships 2021, Murnau, Germany

The current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic situation seems to be improving slowly, with several parts of the
world still experiencing travel restrictions and lockdowns though. It is very hard to imagine that it
would be possible to play a YWC in August, even in reasonably limited version with adjusted
procedures and accompanying events around the championships, like opening and closing
ceremonies etc. Travel restrictions regarding entry to Germany are loosening at the moment, but still
at present visitors from some potential participating countries would need to do a quarantine at entry.
It is also unclear, which size of events can be held in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in August.
Many teams might further face quarantines at return from Germany. We feel that not all nations
willing to participate in YWC might be able to do so in August. Consequently, it would be unfair to
those WMF member nations if the tournament remained as a “world championship” event. The
organizers would face considerable losses with smaller field of participants, at the same time having
higher costs by guaranteeing a safe championship.

Therefore, the Minigolf Youth World Championships 2021 is hereby cancelled.
