25 countries to compete in Women’s European Championships

The 2016 Women’s European Championships will be held from June 10 to 18 at Plus Bowling in Vienna, Austria.

25 out of 48 European Tenpin Bowling Federation (ETBF) member federations – Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, Wales and the host country Austria – participate in the event.

Each team consists of maximum six players, who compete for gold, silver and bronze medals in Singles, Doubles, Trios, five-player Teams, All-Events and Masters in the nine-day competition.

Singles, Doubles, Trios and Team events features six games preliminaries with the top 4 advancing to the playoffs in one-game format, seeded 1 to 4 according to their position in qualifying. No. 1 bowls No. 4 and No. 2 takes on No. 3. The winners bowl for gold and silver and the losers share the bronze medals.

The top three players with the highest 24-game total (combined results of the Singles, Doubles and Team preliminaries) receive the medals in All Events.

The top 24 in All-Events advance to single-elimination Masters match play in best-of-three games format. The top 8 receive one bye.

In each round, the highest seeded player bowls the lowest seeded player, the second-highest seeded player bowls the second-lowest seeded player, and so on. Winners advance and losers will be eliminated. The remaining two players bowl for gold and silver and the losers of the semifinals share the bronze medals.

The 2016 Women’s European Championships serve as the qualifying event for female bowlers competing in the X World Games 2017 in Wroclaw, Poland. The top 5 countries with the two highest positioned players in All-Events qualify for the World Games. The bowling competition will be held July 20-24 at Sky Bowling.
