World Baton Twirling Championships

The World Baton Twirling Championships are the premiere event in the sport of baton twirling; the twirling equivalent of the Olympic Games.

The World Baton Twirling Championships bring together the world’s best sport baton twirlers; elite athletes who compete in an environment of healthy competition, good sportsmanship and international cooperation. These athletes ‘go for the gold’ as they vie for gold, silver and bronze medals in individual, pairs and team events. They are the best of the best; the epitome of baton twirling excellence.

The World Baton Twirling Championships were established by the World Baton Twirling Federation (WBTF) in 1980 and are hosted by a WBTF member country in early August of even-numbered years.



The 2016 World Baton Twirling Championships will be held August 6-15, 2016 in Helsingborg, Sweden. Visit the World Championships website at www.worldbaton2016.com.
