The World Cup contested annually between bowlers from national bowls organisations, at Warilla Bowls and Recreations Club in NSW.
Australia’s two competitors earn the right to compete in the World Cup by virtue of winning the previous year’s Australian Indoor Championships; other member nations either select their representatives or use other events and trials.
The inaugural event (2005) was held in Hong Kong; since then the venue has been Warilla, New South Wales.
The World Cup is played indoors, while the World Youth Cup (for players aged under 25) is usually played outdoors.
