The inaugural Suncity Women’s Open will take place this weekend at the AGL National High-Performance Centre on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The event’s first running will kick off ranked events for the women’s division in 2023. The event will be hosted at the home of the 2022 IBF World Cup and run from the 11-12 March.

The event will also welcome new National Bowling & Operations Manager Nathan Stein to the Tenpin Bowling Australia family where he will take the tournament director duties.

“I’m really excited about the weekend ahead,” explained Stein.

“It’s an exciting event in one of the best places you can hold a tournament in Australia. There is no shortage of things to go see and do on the Sunshine Coast.

“We look forward to welcoming competitors and seeing who comes out on top to take the inaugural title” added Stein.

In stage one, all bowlers will complete 8 games and strive to make the top 16 to advance to stage two.

Day two will see the second stage commence with the semi-finals section that will see an additional 8 games bowled (with pinfall carried from day one) to make the top 8 cut for the finals.

Pinfall will drop for the final stage with the match play finals showcasing the top eight bowlers completing seven games of matchplay plus a positional round with points to determine final placings (2 for a win, 1 for a draw).

Reminder: Participants are encouraged to factor in potential traffic delays and diversions due to the running of the Mooloolaba Triathlon in the area.

Tenpin Bowling Australia wishes all participants the best of luck and high scoring.
