Comprising 30 QubicaAMF equipped lanes, pins and lane-oiling technology, the host centre is situated in the Castlereagh Council district, close to the centre of the vibrant northern metropolis of Belfast which is home to nearly half a million people.
Growing from a tiny 17th century village, Belfast was the engine-room that drove the whirring wheels of the industrial revolution in Ulster and the development of industries such as linen, rope-making and shipbuilding doubled the size of the town every ten years.
Today, the city and the riverfront are again being transformed and much of the city centre is now pleasantly pedestrianised with benches to sit and listen to street musicians. People come to Belfast to enjoy the great restaurants, nightlife, the shopping and the city's strong cultural and artistic life.
Bowlers, officials and supporters throughout the Commonwealth will be invited to Belfast to participate in this year's event and the IV Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championship is expected to attract teams from up to 20 Commonwealth nations.
