It’s Masters Day at the 35th National Disability Championship at Zone Bowling Tuggeranong in the nation’s capital!

Qualifying is now complete, and we have the top bowlers ready to compete in three master events: Restricted, Classic, and Open. The Classic and Open Masters are nationally ranked events within the TBA Inclusion division. Bowlers qualified by achieving their highest three-game series in either a Singles or Doubles entry (plus handicap for the Classic and Restricted divisions) during the championship.

Open Masters

This scratch event is open to male and female bowlers with entering averages of 160 and above. The Open Masters is ranked for the Inclusion Division and eligible bowlers.

Classic Masters

This handicapped event, based on 100% of 200, is open to male and female bowlers with entering averages between 120-159. Like the Open Masters, it is ranked for the Inclusion Division and eligible bowlers.

Restricted Masters

This handicapped event, based on 100% of 200, is open to all male and female bowlers with averages of 119 or below.

Finals Format

The top 16 qualifiers will compete in the finals. The 2023 National Master champions and State Master winners have automatic entry, with vacancies filled by qualifiers.

The Masters Final consists of 8 games (4×2 game blocks). Bowlers in each division will be ranked by total pinfall after 8 games (including handicap in the Classic and Restricted Divisions).

The top 3 in each division will compete in a one-game stepladder final. If the top seed loses the first match, a further one-game match will determine the winner.

Tenpin Bowling Australia congratulates all qualifiers and wishes them the best of luck and high scores in today’s events!
