COVID-19 : Message by IPPA President Carlo Farioli

Dear Friends, IPPA Members, Golfers and Supporters,

At the present time, many of our countries have been affected by the Corona Virus and it has been classified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a pandemic disease.

I would like first of all to tell you, in the name of IPPA, that I am very close to you to and to your families. I would also like to encourage you to heed the WHO’s recommendations as strictly as possible, in order to contain the virus. If we all accept to follow these health measures, we can protect our most vulnerable people and hopefully slow down the infection.

Therefore, we regret to inform you that due to the on-going spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus across the World, IPPA has decided that all IPPA International Championships, Opens, and Meetings in 2020 are CANCELED, as the scientific community is unable to foresee the development of the virus in the coming months.


IPPA will do its best to help if you contact us for any reason.

Dear Friends, together we can be stronger, especially if everyone takes individual responsibility for our public health! Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain and difficult times and we look forward to working with you again as soon as possible.

“It’s a long way to Tipperary, It’s a long way to go”….., but we’ll get there and we look forward to a new and wonderful season!!!

I wish you all the best.

Carlo Farioli, President IPPA and all Members Board IPPA
