The WTBA Executive Committee announced the selections at the 2012 World Youth Championships, taking place this week in Bangkok, Thailand.
“We were so enamoured by the quality of both bids that the WTBA Executive Committee took the extraordinary step of awarding the World Youth Championships to both locations,” said WTBA President and CEO Kevin Durenberger. “Hong Kong and Lincoln both offered the perfect recipe of what we expect from hosts for one of our most important championship events.”
The 2014 World Youth Championships will take place at Hong Kong Bowling City with the event slated to take place in the first half of August 2014. The city of Lincoln will host the World Youth Championships at Sun Valley Lanes in July 2016.
