Why Memory Sports?
There are world championships for virtually every physical sport like Swimming, Boxing, Foot Ball, Cricket, Hockey and Athletics and so on and on and on…
Yet there was no world championships for that most important cognitive function of all, and without which none of the others could exist – MEMORY!
World Memory Sports Council had taken up the initiative to organize Memory Sports across the Globe. In this direction, National Memory Council for India under the aegis of World Memory Sports Council is organizing the Indian National Open Memory Championships – 2018 on 14th October 2018.
