Bowling News USA - August 12, 2014 England's Barnsley Metrodome to Host 15th Annual Weber Cup in October

The Weber Cup, named after bowling legend Dick Weber, is the Ten-pin bowling equivalent of Golf's Ryder Cup. It consists of two teams, Team Europe and Team USA competing over three days in a series of singles, doubles and team (Baker-Style) matches.

The Weber Cup is the annual Europe vs USA tenpin bowling championships and is currently broadcast live from start to finish by Luke Riches - Matchroom Sport Television on Sky Sports in the UK and in many other international channels around the world.

For the first 7 events, from 2000 to 2006, 35 matches were played. Each match worth 1 point. The first team to 18 points won the tournament.  From 2007, the tournament was reduced slightly to 33 matches, again each match is worth 1 point so the first team to 17 will win.

All matches are played in a single lane arena, with banked spectators on both sides, which is specially constructed for the event.
