The finals for the Championships will be a one day
spectacle, staged at the Institut du Judo in the center of Paris. The set up
will consist of a two lane Brunswick installation produced by the Valcke Group
and designed to maximize spectator experience and accommodate for the full HD
TV production of the finals that will occur.

The qualifying for the medal rounds will take place at
the Plaza Bowling in Saint Maximin and will be available to watch on World
Bowling’s Youtube Channel.  All
qualifying and medal rounds will utilise the Current Frame Scoring system which
has been used in previous World Bowling Tour Final events, the ABF Tour Finals
and the Asian Games.

World Bowling CEO Kevin Dornberger says “We are very
excited to showcase the world’s best young bowlers in what we predict to be an
exciting performance staged to perfection in the Institut du Judo in
Paris.  The sport of bowling has a huge,
active community of young athletes and we are very proud of this new Championships’
initiative to celebrate and inspire these future legends of the sport.”
