On 21 March 2017, the ETBF Presidium was informed about the passing away of Rune Widell at the age of 86 years.

Rune Widell was a highly respected member of the ETBF Presidium for 25 years until he retired on 1 March 2010. Rune also had the position of Secretary General of WTBA for four years.

His passing away is a great loss for our bowling community in Europe and he will be deeply missed by all and especially by his friends in the Presidium.

We wish his wife and family a lot of strength to bare this loss.

May he rest in Peace.
