    The event combined the Russian Individual and Team Championships, which were held separately in previous years, and drew 166 participants from 14 regions of Russia, 112 men and 54 women.

    The Championships was played on 42 feet (long) and 38 feet (medium) lane conditioning pattern and featured four events each in men's and women's division, Singles, Doubles, Trios and Team plus a Mixed Doubles event.

    In each event, the top four after six games of qualifying advanced to the playoffs to determine the medalists. No. 1 bowled No. 4 and No 2 took on No. 3 in the semifinal matches. The winners bowled for gold and silver and the losers determined the bronze medalist.

    As the repeat winners in the All-Events standings (non-medal event), Bulanova and Parshukov will represent Russia in 2015 European Championships Cup October19-26 in San Marino.

    The top six women in All-Events, Bulanova, her team mate Kristina Kryl, Moscow's, Alena Korobkova, Daria Voronkova and Nadezda Korablinova as well as St. Petersburg's Anastasia Tikhonova made the Russian team for the 2015 Women's World Championships December 5-14 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
