“By God’s power and the endorsement of the World MiniGolf Federation and also by you; our African MiniGolf players, together we have made history in launching not just an African MiniGolf Championship but the African Youth Championship to follow in November and next year the Africa Cup of Nation’s Championship in Ghana as well.”
In these magnificent words; Mr. Tallal Fatal, President and Secretary General of the Ghana MiniGolf and the Africa MiniGolf Federations, excitedly delivered his speech at the launch of the 2018 Open African MiniGolf Championships event at the Sports City Arena in Accra.
The event witnessed expressive display of culture and traditional apparels from the participating minigolfers who proudly demonstrated their beautiful national colors and vigor.
The tournament, the first of its kind begins on Friday July 27 at the Sports City Arena in Accra, Ghana and ends on a likely sun-kissed Sunday July 29. It has assembled some of the finest minigolfers from both the Anglophone and Francophone countries.
Mr. Fatal noted that Ghana shall host three African Championships and that will serve as the beacon and the springboard for other African countries to follow.
“We are not just proud of what we are doing in Ghana, we are for Africa as a whole, but Ghana will be the prototype for the rest of the African countries to follow”. He said
The maiden Championship will on Sunday produce four African Champions. This will comprise Africa Male and Runner-Up Champions and Africa Female and Runner-Up Champions.
