These are the championships in the WBF's four year cycle which take place in even numbered years other than leap years - that is to say, in 1990, in 1994 and so on.
They consist of a series of championship and subsidiary events which have the World Open Pairs, the World Women's Pairs, and the World Knockout Teams for the Rosenblum Cup as their centerpiece.
In 1994, the first World Women's Knockout Teams was played for the McConnell Cup, which was run on similar lines to the Rosenblun Cup.
These Championships are now the biggest of all WBF Championships in terms of entries. They began, however, on a modest scale, simply as World Open Pairs and a corresponding Women's event with, in the early years, a Mixed event of one kind or another to round out the programme. Today, the programme includes team and pairs competitions in all categories (open, women, seniors, mixed).
