Though there were 14 of 16 men and 12 of 16 women from Chinese Taipei in the Asian Bowling Federation (ABF) tour leg at Southern Bowling Center in Koahsiung, Chinese Taipei, the women’s and men’s title went to Bianca Tofilau of New Zealand and Atchariya Cheng of Thailand.

16 men and 16 women who qualified through the 17th Koahsiung International Open Bowling Championships determined the champions in single-elimination match-play bracket. All matches were one game. For the second consecutive season, the ABF Tour is using the World Bowling Scoring System.

Bowling in her first ABF Tour stop, Tofilau (left) flew past Chang Yu-Hsuan of Chinese Taipei in the women’s championship match, 233-166, to seal the victory.

In the semifinals, Tofilau edged the Chan Shuk Han of Hong Kong, 181-179, while Chang (right) sidelined her compatriot Pan Yu-Fen, 221-188.

On the men’s side, Cheng (left) eliminated three Chinese Taipei bowlers on his way to the title match where he wrapped up the title with a 229-210 victory against Hsieh Chin-Liang, also of Chinese Taipei.

In the semifinals, Cheng ousted Lin Pai-Feng, 230-210, while Hsieh (right) defeated his compatriot Wu Hao-Ming, 245-211. It was also the first ABF Tour title for Cheng.

The 2017 Asian Bowling Federation Tour features five legs in East Asia (the China leg is not yet confirmed) and the H.H. Emir Cup in Doha Qatar, which counted as an ABFT Ranking Tournament for the men.

The next stop of the ABF Tour will take place in Hong Kong, China, on July 16 following the 43rd Hong Kong International Open Tenpin Bowling Championships July 7-15 at South China Athletic Association Bowling Center.
