After 1999, the tournament was held every few four years -- in 2002, 2006 and 2010. The tournament was dominated by Cuba which won 10 gold and 3 silver in 16 tournaments. The most recent tournament was held in 2010, in Taichung, Taiwan, and appears to have been the last time the tournament was held.[1][2]

The 1973 and 1975 tourneys were organized by the IBAF splinter group FEMBA. The groups reunited in 1976 and continued to present the competition.[3]
