Stage nearing completion for The World Games Birmingham 2022

IBF Global Partner, QubicaAMF’s installation is well underway for the World’s first International Elite competition held on String Pinspotters at The World Games, Birmingham, 2022.

The international multi-sport event will feature the world’s first International Bowling Federation (IBF) – sanctioned tournament on string machines, featuring IBF Global Partner, QubicaAMF’s state-of-the-art EDGE String Pinspotters.

The installation at BJCC illustrates how there is no longer a dependency for bowling centres to be within the vicinity of multi-sport venues, as EDGE String can adapt easily to temporary infrastructure demands. The flexibility given by QubicaAMF within the partnership allows IBF to ensure bowling remains a key multi-sport game, elevating the wider perception of bowling on the international stage.

As part of International Bowling Federation (IBF) commitment to the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework and its ongoing efforts to promote bowling as one of the world’s most environmentally friendly sports, QubicaAMF, IBF’s global bowling equipment supplier, is installing it’s new Edge String technology within the BJCC.

The Sports for Climate Action initiative calls on sporting organisations to acknowledge the contribution of the sports sector to climate change and our responsibility to strive towards climate neutrality for a safer planet.

With The World Games taking place 7-17 July 2022, the bowling competition will play out 8 – 11 July at the Birmingham–Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) in Alabama, US. Traditionally held in the year following the Summer Olympic Games, the event embodies the highest competition level for over 3,600 international athletes and more than 30 unique sports. Examples of other sports taking place include archery, orienteering, powerlifting, roller speed skating and snooker.
