Each team consists of maximum six male and six female bowlers. Men and women compete 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 will be contested on two oil pattern - a 39 foot medium pattern and a 48 foot long pattern, which will be conditioned by Kegel.

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

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