ISBT Tour 2016 Stop 10
Bowling Goes, Goes, Netherlands
29th November to 4th December 2016

Champions: Ron Oldfield and Karin Lischka

The final stop on the 2016 ISBT tour was a new venue, Bowling Goes in the Netherlands. This 12 lane centre is run by established international bowler Erwin Groen, and is well setup for competitive bowling, including a high quality restaurant which was put to good use for the traditional Saturday night players meal. The entry list of 54 men and 14 women was perhaps slightly disappointing, possibly due to the lower than normal prize fund for and ISBT event, but hopefully the entries will increase next year.

The format for the tournament was a single 6 game qualifying block, with unlimited re-entries. For those not able to qualify through the main leaderboard, there were additional opportunities through Scratch scores, Turbo games, and a Desperado squad. Age bonus started at age 51 (1 pin per game), then increased a pin for every additional year of age with no limit. As with all ISBT events, there was a separate division for ladies.

The tournament started on Tuesday, with Netherlands bowlers John de Vries and Ben Penninkhof leading the way with 1393 and 1307. Local favourite Farida Pascoal-Blom had a fine block of 1270 to show she was still in fine form.

Bowling resumed with a single small squad on Thursday evening, won by Roger Pieters (Belgium) with 1406, ahead of bowl owner Erwin Grown (Netherlands). Friday saw two more squads, with Ron Oldfield (England), and Valentin Fatu (Romania) leading the way. Liliane Vintens (Belgium) was top lady over the two Friday squads.

The first two squads on Saturday were led by English bowlers, Steven Jeeves and Lol Ellis. The third was won by Harald Punessen (Germany) with 1508, the highest qualifying block of the tournament. Martina Beckel (Germany) bowled 1288 to ensure her position in the ladies’ qualification standings.

At the end of qualification, the men’s leaderboard was led by Harald Punesson with 1508, ahead of Ron Oldfield and Valentin Fatu. The top 18 would automatically progress to the finals, 18th place was Keith Hodge (England) with 1340. These 18 would be joined by two Turbo, two Scratch, and two Desperado bowlers, making a total of 24 qualifiers. Martina Beckel led the women’s section with 1288, ahead of Farida Pascoal-Blom, and Liliane Vintens. Only five women would qualify from the overall rankings, with Karin Lischka (Germany) being the fifth placed bowler on 1176. These five were joined by three more bowlers, one each from the Scratch, Turbo and Desperado lists.

The remaining men bowled a four game block from scratch, the top 16 progressing to the next round. Roger Pieters again scored well to lead with 997 from Ron Oldfield. Carlo Greulich (Germany) was the cut with 868. The 16 qualifiers then bowled a further four games, with pinfall carrying through. Roger Pieters slipped to third place, overtaken by Ron Oldfield and Harald Punessen, with Steven Jeeves just squeezing through in 12th place. The remaining 12 then bowled a further four games to determine the top four who would reach the stepladder finals. There was no change in the top four places, with Frank Lindsay (England) making the cut by a single pin to join Ron Oldfield, Harald Punessen and Roger Pieters.

The final was a straightforward single game stepladder. In the first match, Roger Pieters easily dispatched Frank Lindsay 261 to 219. In the second match, he had a narrow victory over Harald Punessen 203 to 181. However, the final did not go his way, and Ron Oldfield found the strikes for a 272 (247 scratch) game to easily become champion for the second time in 2016.

The ladies final was much simpler, with the remaining eight bowlers playing four games to determine the top four. Top qualifier was Karin Lischka who bowled steadily throughout for her total of 855. Also making the finals were Martina Beckel, Jan Hodge (England), and Inge Hazeleger (Netherlands).

In the first stepladder match, Jan Hodge saw off Inge Hazeleger 211-196, but then lost in a low scoring match to Martina Beckel 187 to 157. The scoring pace picked up in the final, with Karin Lischka emerging as the winner over Martina Beckel 231 to 216.

The ISBT tour will resume in 2017 for Arthur’s Senior Open in Osnabruck, Germany, which takes place from the 5th to 12th March at Vegas Bowling. This will be immediately followed by the ISBT Masters for 2016, where the top bowlers from the 2016 are invited to compete for the Masters title.
