Korea led the medal tally with three gold, two silver and two bronze medals. Chinese Taipei, China and Thailand took home the other gold medals. Other countries earning medals for their respective National Olympic Committees were Philippines, Indonesia, Qatar, Hong Kong and India.

The bowling competition of the 5th Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games was held from September 21-27 at a 32-lane bowling center in the Olympic Village in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

102 athletes, 64 men and 38 women, from eighteen countries – China, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Iran, Macau, New Caledonia, Philippines, Qatar, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and the host nation, Turkmenistan, competed for medals in singles, doubles and four-player team event.

Singles was contested on a 37 ft. short pattern, in doubles the lanes were conditioned with the 44 ft. long pattern and the team event used both patterns (3 games on long and 3 games on short oil).

Each event started with six-game preliminaries. The top 8 in singles and doubles and the top 4 teams advanced to medal round. In all matches the highest seed met the lowest seed, the second-highest took on the second-lowest, and so on. All matches were one game with the highest pinfall advancing.

The semi-final losers each received a bronze medal while the winners bowled for gold and silver. There is no masters or all-events competition in the Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games.
