World Bowls is the recognised International Sports Federation for Bowls in the world.

With over 60 members across the world, World Bowls is committed to inspiring more people of all ages and abilities to participate in this sport.

In 2023, World Bowls launched a new strategic plan with a purpose of arresting the decline in our existing membership, expand the sport into new markets and grow the number of member nations.

With a committed and small number of professional staff members, together with an active and experienced Board of Directors and sub committees (Laws and Coaching), World Bowls is embarking on an ambitious and aggressive approach to improve the profile and the brand of Bowls globally.

Sport and entertainment across the World is highly competitive and ever changing, so Bowls like other sporting pursuits needs to evolve and change to meet the ever changing demands of current and prospective members, participants and viewers.
