The BTBA UK Championship Tour (known also by ‘BTBA Tour’) has been designed to bridge the gap between local area tournaments and the Team England Trials. We want to attract as many bowlers as possible to come out and experience tournament play, and to feel competitive and not intimidated. The aim is for bowlers to gain confidence to trial for the National Team. Others will seek to improve their game further with coaching.

The BTBA Tour is a series of 11 events with varying formats. Individuals can earn ranking points and prize money throughout the year. The entry fee to these tournaments is kept as low as possible, with both handicap and scratch sections offered. The prize fund in these tournaments is boosted by the 2020 sponsors  Bowling Vision, Striking Shirts, and PDQ Printing Services

The tournaments themselves are run by the Local Association with the aim of raising the profile of the game in their region, as well as using the tournament to raise funds, which we hope will be used in the promotion of the sport. It also helps in building relationships between Local Associations and the bowling centres in their county.
