The WWC is the sixth World Championship for women since World Bowling (formerly the World Tenpin Bowling Association), the governing body for the sport of bowling, has decided at its 2013 congress to split the men’s and women’s events.
In 2012, the WTBA switched back to a four-year cycle which allowed the organization to add a new World Singles Championships and combined World Championships for men and women to its schedule.
Inaugurated in the year 2013, the world championships for men and women age 50 and older will visit Las Vegas for the third time in four events. The inaugural WSrC was staged at Red Rock (2013) while Sam’s Town hosted the second edition (2015). The most recent championships took place at Dream-Bowl Palace in Munich, Germany (2017).
