    2014 World Bowling Tour

    2014WorldBowlingLogo.jpg The 2014 World Bowling Tour consisted of 12 tournaments in Arabia (6), United States (3), Europe (2) and Asia (1).

    Players earned ranking points based on how they finished in each event. The current WBT points system is based on a continuous two-year cycle, so points include every event from 2013 and 2014.

    WBTLogo_small.jpgThe top three men and top three women in the WBT Point Ranking advance to the WBT Finals, which will be contested the first weekend in November in Las Vegas as part of the Professional Bowlers Association's World Series of Bowling VI. The finals will air on national television in the United States.
