Coming next: Coverage of the EBT "Satellite" Roto Grip Polish Open


    2015 European Bowling Tour #9

    Sky Bowling in Wroclaw, Poland (June 22-28, 2015)

    2015EBT09PolishOpenLogo.jpg The Roto Grip Polish Open, a newcomer on the European Bowling Tour, is the ninth stop of the 2015 season and the fifth out of eight EBT "Satellite" tournaments this season. The tournament will be held from June 22-28 at 24-lane Sky Bowling in Wroclaw, Poland, host of the 2012 and 2014 QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup.

    Players will compete for total prize money of 30.000 Euro with 6.000 Euro going to the winner, 4.000 to the runner-up and 2.500 to the third place finisher. Last-to-cash payout (40th place) is 250 Euro.

    Qualifying (six games, unlimited re-entries) gets underway on Monday, June 22, with Squads 1 & 2 and runs through Saturday, June 27, with the final Squad 18 scheduled for 9 p.m. Central European Summer Time (CEST). Qualifying concludes with the one-game Desperado Squad slated for Sunday at 0.30 a.m.
    Please note: Due to the lack of entries Squads 7 and 11 have been canceled.

    Women receive 8 pins handicap each game (maximum score is 300), an equality handicap provided to women in all EBT events.

    Total 40 players will qualify for the finals - the top 30 players from the overall qualifying standings, the top three players each from a separate leaderboard of Squads 5-10 and 1-4, who are not among the top 30, one player each from the Turbo Game 5 and Turbo Game 6 standings, and the top 2 players of the Desperado Squad.

    The Turbo G5 and G6 winners are the players with the highest score in the fifth and sixth game in any of the qualifying series (extra entry fee required).

    The top 4 qualifiers earn three byes, qualifiers 5-10 get two and qualifiers 11-20 receive a first-round bye. The remaining 20 players advance to the first of three four-game rounds which will trim the field to 30, 20 and then 10 players, who advance to round robin match play.

    Match play consists of nine games starting from scratch (no position round match). During match play, players receive 30 bonus pins for winning a match, 10 pins each in the event of a tie and 10 points for any score higher than 250.

    The top 3 with the highest nine-game total including bonus will determine the champion in the stepladder finals.

    2015EBTLogo_small.jpg The 2015 European Bowling Tour currently consists of 17 tournaments in 13 countries featuring three "Platinum" events, three "Gold", three "Silver" and eight "Satellite" events. All 17 tournaments together offer total prize fund of 870.000 Euro or 971.400 U.S. Dollar.

    The top 50 men and the top 50 women in each event receive ranking points. Those points will be tabulated throughout the season to determine the top 12 men and top 12 women, who will compete in the 9th EBT Masters July 25, 2016 at Rose'n Bowl in Serravalle, San Marino following the 12th San Marino Open.
