With the objective of organising a successful International  Open which will be celebrated from the 7th. - 9th March 2008 on the HCP1 course, Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, Barcelona, the Tournament Committee has established preliminary pre-inscription date of  1st. November 2007 in order to ascertain the approximate number of participants attending the tournament, especially those from other FIPPA associations.  This will allow the organising committee to estimate the potential dimension of the event.  The definitive closing date for inscriptions is February 1st 2008.

Those players, pre-inscribed, will have first preference and will be allocated guaranteed participation assuming they comply with the prerequisite norms applied to the competition.  If one FIPPA member association exceeds the suggested limit of available places, every effort will be made to accommodate those players should there be vacancies from other FIPPA member organisations.

  • 5 players per member organisation of FIPPA
  • 30 places reserved for affiliated playing members of the hosting member FCPP
  • 5 places reserved as invitations at the pleasure of the hosting club

The Catalan Federation of Pitch & Putt will determine which players will have direct placement based on the most recent Catalan championships and the current Ranking League. Subsequent places for local participants will be determined by means of an open qualifying competition, so as to allow all those interested a possibility to attend the Open.  The qualifying competition will be held on the 1st. & 2ndth.

Achievement Award for former EPPA President

fippa_jmanzizu.jpgOn Friday 24 November, at a gala dinner organised by the Association of Directors of Sports Federations (ACDE) in Catalonia, the President of the Federazione Catalana Pitch and Putt (FCPP), José Maria de Anzizu, was nominated and received the distinction of Best Director of a national sports federation.  The award was presented to José Maria by the president of the ACDE Mr. Pere Sust, ex - Secretary of Sport of the Catalan Government, in recognition of the successful development of the sport of Pitch and Putt and Josep Maria's personal dedication to the management of the Pitch & Putt Federation. José Maria accepted the award on behalf of the many who have collaborated in the evolution of the sport both in Catalonia and internationally.


José Maria de Anzizu was President of the European Pitch and Putt Association (EPPA) from 2002 until 2004 and was appointed Secretary General of the Federation of International Pitch and Putt Associations (FIPPA) in March 2006.  A qualified lawyer, José M. de Anzizu, consultant and professor in academic Barcelona institutions, studied new theories on organisational change and development at Harvard University in the 1970s. On his return to Barcelona, he put the theories into practice successfully in various organisations, one of them a family services firm he inherited .  He later formed the Jose M. de Anzizu Foundation to organise The Centre for Organisational Studies (COS) to promote the study, research and exchange of ideas in the field of management with the final aim of developing organisations that are more efficient in human, economic and social terms.


In addition to his Pitch and Putt administrative duties, José Maria still plays regularly and competes successfully on the Catalan circuit.
