We are proud to be selected by the International World Games Association as the Official Wake Board Boat for the World Games being held in Wrocław, Poland, in July 2017.

What Are The World Games

The World Games have now been in existence for 36 years, with the first World Games being held in Santa Clara in the USA, in 1981. At those Games there were only 15 official sports and 1, invitational sport. The World Games is an international multi-sport event, for sports which are not included in the Olympic Games. Many sports which appeared in the World Games have now been adopted by the Olympics, such as  badminton, beach volleyball, trampolining, rugby sevens, taekwondo, triathlon and women's weightlifting.

The World Games are organised and governed by the International World Games Association (IWGA), and are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The World Games take place every four years, and are one year after the Summer Olympic Games.
It is interesting to know that the sports which are included in the World Games are limited by the facilities available in the host city, and no new facilities may be constructed for the games. With the growth in popularity of the World Games, now between 25 and 30 sports have been included in the official programme of the World Games. In addition, the IWGA, in coordination with the host city, can invite some sport to participate in the "invitational" programme. No World Games medals are awarded to invitational sports.

To become part of the World Games programme, the sport must be widely spread in the world and the specific international sports federation must be a member of the IWGA. In each sport, only the best athletes or teams may participate, as determined by the international sports federations. In most classes, it is necessary to qualify by a top ranking at the world championships or a qualification tournament to be able to participate.

Understanding the importance of the World Games, enabling top athletes and sports to shine on a World platform, is why Malibu is proud to be part of this organisation.
