Latest National Rankings for May released

by Domenic Favata

Both Ryan Bester and Kristina Krstic have continued their stranglehold on the respective male and female number one ranking positions with just one major event before the rankings year competition.

The National Rankings System operates on a yearly rolling-points system, where all points accrued are retained for a twelve-month period and are then discounted.

The rankings year concludes at the completion of the 2019 Australian Open, with the number one ranked male and female players earning the titles of Male and Female Bowlers of the Year and $3,000 prize purses each.

(Scroll to the bottom of this page to also view National Rankings sans June 2018 events, including 2018 Australian Open ranking points deducted.)

Players can accrue ranking points from all national events, State Championships, State Champion of Champion and selected club events.
