As a consequence of a construction change in Odense Bowling Centre the up-coming summer, after which the number of lanes in the centre will be reduced from 24 to 20, the ETBF Presidium has decided to move the European Women Championships 2018 from Odense in Denmark to Brussels in Belgium.

The championships, which will be hosted by the Belgian Tenpin Bowling Federation, will be held on its original scheduled period 6-17 June in Bowling Stones Wemmel (36 lanes), which also housed the European Men Championships in 2016.

The ETBF Presidium wants to express appreciation to the Belgian Tenpin Bowling Federation for their willingness to step in with a short notice.
