International Sports Promotion Society

ISPS Handa was founded by Dr Haruhisa Handa in 2006 to further the transformative power of sport across the globe

ISPS HANDA funds and promotes sporting events in archery, bowling, boxing, football, golf, polo, rowing, rugby and swimming with an emphasis on blind and disabled golf. We believe that sport has a unique ability to create hope, to break down educational and cultural barriers and to inspire people in a way that can unite communities around the world.


Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair…

Nelson Mandela

This is my life’s work, and why I am involved in so many tournaments. I will always help to promote disabled golfers and blind golfers. I am getting old, but thanks to golf, I feel like I am getting younger.
