The 35th World Championship and 40th anniversary celebration has been re-scheduled!

WBTF will return to Italy for our 35th World Championship and 40th anniversary celebration August 1 to 7, 2022.  Meetings will be scheduled August 1-3 and the championship will be held August 4-7.  The event will be held in Turin, Italy.   

Our baton twirling family is looking forward to reuniting again on the world stage. We miss our friends and the excitement of watching and experiencing the fabulous head-to-head competition of our sport’s best athletes.   

While we are still finding our way through these uncertain times, WBTF is committed to providing opportunities for athletes and professionals through virtual technology keeping our sport alive through this pandemic even when we are forced to remain apart.  Thanks to the internet and the ways we can remain connected we will survive and look ahead to the bright future of our sport.!

The Federation Twirling Italia is our host for the event and will be providing further information about the 35th World Championship and 40th Anniversary Celebration at a later date.

Athletes and coaches please note: the age eligibility rule for the championship reverts to the original rule:  Junior athletes are 12 years of age to 17 years of age and Senior athletes are 18 years of age or older during the year of the World Championships, from January 1 through December 31, 2022.

Stay well and stay positive!
