2017 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TO BE HELD IN LAS VEGAS

LAUSANNE, May 17th – The 2017 World Championships will be held from November 24th to December 4th in South Point Hotel Casino, Las Vegas.  The Championships which was due to be held in Kuwait City in December has had to change location due to unforeseen delays with the construction of the Kuwait Bowling Center.  World Bowling Executive Board have instead awarded the 2021 World Championships hosting rights to Kuwait.

World Bowling CEO, Kevin Dornberger says “The delays in construction meant that we could not be certain that the new facility would be ready in time.  South Point Hotel and Casino provides an excellent back up choice and we are certain that the change in location will have no effect on the event itself.  We are very much looking forward to the completion of the world class facility being built in Kuwait and anticipate an excellent event being held there in 2021.”
