For the first time in the history of the World Bowling Tour (WBT) series, one male and one female athlete from each of the three zones (Asian, European and Pan American) have been invited to take part in the WBT Finals alongside the top three male and top three female athletes from the 2019 WBT Rankings list. The 2019 World Bowling Tour (WBT) Finals will take place in Kuwait on November 7, 2019 at the 48-lane Kuwait Bowling Sporting Club.
