"Since its inception 29 years ago, ABF has been at the leading edge of marketing initiatives and promotion of our sport." said Ms Lau. "We've had a very successful association with the Asian Bowling Tour for the past 14 years and will now continue our own tour - we're confident that this exciting development will lift the sport to even greater heights," she continued.
The ABF Tour will comprise four Legs in 2018 and a Grand Final, the Tournament of Champions. Each Leg will be staged over one day. The top 16 men and top 16 women bowlers from the preceding International Open Masters Event (Open Grade) will compete in a one-game match play knock-out competition for the individual men's and women's titles.
