WBT launches the 2015-16 European Masters Circuit where two players from each event go through to a Finals Event to play off for two ‘Tourcards’. These Tourcards give the two players automatic entry direct into all the WBT Professional Ranking events for the 2016 season including the 2017 Professional Indoor World Championships.
With eight venues throughout the season and two winners from each venue going through to the European Masters Finals in May 2016 at Blackpool Newton Hall Holiday Park where two winners will get a ‘Tourcard’ entitling each one to a place in every WBT Ranking event in the WBT 2016-17 season this will give each winner a massive chance of getting into the top 16 in a single season.
With an overall prize fund for the Professional Singles element of the WBT Tour for that season worth in excess of £215,000 there is a massive incentive for current and new members of the Professional Bowls Association to enter these Masters events which are open to every PBA member from across the globe.
