Weber Cup To Host BTBA Final5 Challenge Trophy

June 8th, 2018

Matchroom Multi Sport are pleased to announce the BTBA Final5 Challenge Trophy will once again be staged alongside the Weber Cup at Arena MK, Milton Keynes.

The Final5 Challenge will take place between the two Weber Cup sessions on Saturday, June 16 and will see the 2018 European Youth Gold medal winning team play a challenge match against the 2018 World Youth Championship team under the rules of Final5, a new initiative from the BTBA.

Each team features four bowlers who will bowl the final five frames of a game baker style using the same World Bowling Scoring system employed by the Weber Cup. The final frame will be bowled by a player selected by the opposing team’s captain.
