Invented in 1989 by an American named Jeff Knurek, the sport of roundnet grew rapidly all over the world. It was only a matter of time before this amazing sport made its way to Asia. As roundnet became more and more popular in Asia, leaders of the sport in many countries saw the need to form a unified governing body to continue advancing the sport while creating oversight. Thus the Asian Roundnet Federation was born! Officially founded on March 10th, 2021, The Asian Roundnet Federation is Asia's official roundnet governing organization. We are a non-profit whose sole purpose is to provide administrative oversight while promoting and connecting the roundnet community in Asia through an international tournament circuit...
