International Bowling Federation (IBF; known as the Fédération Internationale des Quilleurs (FIQ) between 1952 and April 2014) and World Bowling (WB) between 2014 and November 2020 is the world governing body of ninepin and tenpin bowling. IBF was founded in 1952 in Hamburg, Germany by officials of the International Bowling Association (founded 1926) to foster worldwide interest in amateur ten-pin and nine-pin bowling, as well as international friendship by encouraging world and zone tournaments and other competition between bowlers of different countries. IBF has been recognized by the International Olympic Committee since 1979 as the governing body for bowling sports. Starting with five member federations in 1952, it grew to 141 in 2010.
IBF has member federations located in all five Olympic regions. With more than 100 million participants, 10 million competitors and 250,000 bowling lanes, it is one of the largest and best-organised sports in the world.
The ITA is supporting IBF with the delivery of their anti-doping program since August 2018.
