The Asia Oceania Zone of IWBF is delighted to announce that the zone’s qualifying tournament for the Men’s U23 World Championships will be held in Bangkok, Thailand in January 2017.

IWBF Asia Oceania Zone President, Saad Alazma said,”I’m really excited at the prospect of having up to 10 teams of young players fighting for the right to represent their zone at next year’s World Championships. There are a number of nations that are developing teams for the future, and we have seen a significant rise in the number of teams in the Asia Oceania Zone since the qualifiers for the previous World Championships in 2013.
