Date & time
The World Bowls Championships will be staged on the Gold Coast in 2023, more than three years after it was originally planned to be held. Controlling body World Bowls (WB), host nation Bowls Australia (BA) and principal partners Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) and Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC) have confirmed that the sport’s pinnacle international competition will be played from August 29 to September 10, 2023, some 1179 days after it was first meant to be contested before COVID-19 postponements. Originally scheduled to commence on May 26, 2020, the event first suffered two postponements to its scheduling and was then ultimately cancelled due to travel restrictions impacting the 36-attending nations. Organisers have undertaken to hold the first staging of a revised competition format in 2023, which will move to a biennial rather than quadrennial staging and do away with all barrier qualifying events to increase global participation, across the five Gold Coast bowls clubs; Broadbeach, Helensvale, Musgrave, Paradise Point and Mudgeeraba.
