The 2012 edition of the MTBA National Junior and Intermediate Championships, sponsored by TENOVAR Ltd. For the second consecutive year, will be starting this weekend at the Eden SuperBowl, organized by the Malta Tenpin Bowling Association.

Last year’s edition of these championships attracted no fewer than 27 participating youngsters which was a record for many years, thanks to the hard work and support of the MTBA coaching staff, and continued support of the Eden SuperBowl. This year’s two concurrent events are expected to increase further on that figure, thanks to the continued expansion of schemes such as Skola Sport, Skola Sajf and the various MTBA administered coaching schemes.

The TENOVAR National Junior and Intermediate Championships will be played over two weekends, with both events bowling twelve games, over two sessions this coming Sunday 28th October, and the following Saturday 3rd November. That point will mark the conclusion of the TENOVAR National Junior Championships, the male and female champions being decided by their simple total pinfall over those twelve games.

The top six U-23 bowlers will then advance to a second stage. Intermediate stage two will be a ‘round robin’ event comprising five direct head-to-head encounters for each qualifier. Other than the pinfall attained in each round-robin game, bonus points will also be added for wins, draws and also high games.

A stepladder final will then be played immediately after the round-robin, between the top three qualifiers, to ultimately decide the 2012 TENOVAR National Intermediate Champions.

The playing schedule at the Eden SuperBowl will be: Sunday 28th October, 0930hrs. Saturday 3rd November, 0930hrs. Sunday 4th November, 0930hrs (Intermediates only). Spectators are welcome to attend the Eden SuperBowl to watch the championships, at no charge.
