The Confédération Mondiale des Sports de Boules (CMSB) is the international organization, recognized by the International Olympic Committee, which governs the sport of the boules.[1]

History

The CMSB – Confédération Mondiale des Sports de Boules – was created (on 21 December 1985 in Monaco) by three international boules organizations

for the purpose of lobbying the Olympic committee to make boules sports part of the summer Olympics. World Bowls (bowls) was also a member from 2003 until 2013.

Boules and the CMSB were granted consideration for entry to the Olympic Games on 15 October,[year needed] but have never been granted the status of an official Olympic sport. Nevertheless, every year the CMSB continues to re-present its application.[2]
