Manila, also known as the Pearl of the Orient, is located in Southern Luzon, the largest of the more than 7,000 islands that make up the nation known as the Philippines. The city flanks Manila Bay, and is divided into northern and southern sections by the Pasig River. Manila serves not only as the country's capitol, but also as its financial, publishing, and business center.
Philippines hosted the inaugural championships in 1987 and its second in 1997. It has been twenty years since having hosted the championships and we look forward to a successful event.
The Organizing Chairman and its Committee extends its utmost appreciation to the Asian Bowling Federation for its support, confidence and endorsement of Philippine Bowling Federation as host of this 2017 Championship.
