201 athletes, 125 men and 76 women, from 22 Asian Bowling Federation (ABF) member federations participated in the 23rd edition of the prestigious event. Each team consisted of maximum six male and six female bowlers. Men and women competed in separate divisions for gold, silver and bronze medals in six disciplines: Singles, Doubles, Trios, five-player Teams, All Events and Masters.

The 23rd Asian Championships was contested on two oil pattern – a 39 foot medium pattern and a 48 foot long pattern, which were conditioned by Kegel.

Singles (six games on long oil) and Doubles (six games on medium oil) were contested on one oil pattern, while Trios and Team featured both oil patterns (three games on each pattern). The players with the highest pinfall total after six games were declared the champions.

The top 3 in All Events (24 games; individual pinfall total in Singles, Doubles, Trios and Team event) received the medals while the top 16 advanced to the Masters finals. The top 3 after two eight-game blocks (first block on medium oil, second block on long oil) determined the champions in a stepladder final.
