The International Pitch and Putt Association was founded on 2 April 2009 in Madrid. IPPA includes all organizations that develop and maintain the sport of Pitch & Putt at a national and international level.
IPPA contributes to the global expansion of Pitch & Putt by establishing close relationships between pitch and putt, golf and other relevant sports organizations. Pitch and Putt is golf with a difference – it is shorter, faster, cheaper and, if you’re interested in the skillful side of the game, more fun.
“Our ambition is to promote the competitive sport of Pitch and Putt internationally by organizing competitions at the highest level,” the statement ends.
