    2016ABFTLogo.jpg The 2016 Asian Bowling Federation (ABF) Tour consists of six legs in East Asia featuring the top 16 Asian men and the top 16 Asian women of the foregoing international open tournaments which serve as the qualifying events, and four ranking tournaments in the Middle east in which the top 16 men in the finals standings receive ranking points.

    Alisports, the official partner of the ABF Tour provides US$4,000 in prize money for each of the six legs. The men's and women's champions will receive US$1,000 apiece, the first runner-up takes US$500 and the semi-final losers will share US$500.
