This week sees the Eden SuperBowl host the 24th edition of the Malta Open Championships, and event which has remained one of the best and most popular on the European tenpin circuit, since its inception in 1992. No fewer than 120 top international bowlers, hailing from 18 different nations are registered to take part in this year’s tournament.

Competitive play begins on Wednesday with a series of twelve qualifying squads, each comprising six games. All participants must play an arbitrary two squads in order to amass a 12-game qualifying total. They then have the opportunity to play a 6-game ‘re-entry’, which would allow them to replace the low series from their original two sets, with the scope of improving on their original qualification total.

A total of 32 bowlers will qualify for the latter stages in this way. Then once all qualifying squads are completed, a single game ‘Desperado’ squad will be played, from which a further four bowlers will qualify, on just that single game score, to take the total number in the final stages up to 36 in all.

The final stages will be played on Sunday, starting early with two more qualification rounds in the morning, each of four games, which will whittle the qualifiers down to the top 16. After that there will be a series of three Knock-Out stages with eight bowlers competing in the quarter finals, going down to four for the Semis, from which the two winning bowlers will move on to the Grand Final, playing over two games to decide the 2015 Malta Open Champion.

Other than a trophy and the prestigious tournament title, the new champion will also walk away with a fitting share of the €12,000 cash prize fund, put up by the tournament sponsors, The Eden Leisure Group.
