Dear Baton Twirlers,

The Swedish Baton Twirling Federation, together with the WBTF and in close cooperation with the City of Helsingborg and the region of Skåne, has the pleasure of inviting you to take part in the 2016 World Baton Twirling Championships to be held in Helsingborg.

Preparations are already being made to welcome baton twirlers from
all around the world to this exciting event. The Championships venue, Helsingborg in the south of Sweden, is second to none when it comes to providing the best possible conditions for participants. The town is unique, as it can offer everything within walking distance. The training facilities, hotels, accommodation, restaurants, city centre, bathing beaches and recreation opportunities can all be found within a radius of 1 km.

This brochure aims to give you a picture of what to expect during
your visit. And don’t forget, there is so much more to do here besides competing in baton twirling – Helsingborg is also the perfect holiday town.

We look forward to bringing together baton twirlers from all over the globe and to contributing to the advancement of competitive baton twirling and the promotion of friendship between different countries. We hope that you like what you see in this presentation and extend a very warm welcome to all participants in the 33rd World Baton Twirling Championships.

Yours sincerely


Niclas Persson
Swedish Baton Twirling Federation
