The Inaugural EBT Masters was held in the Rollhouse bowling centre in Ankara, Turkey. The winners of the Event were Osku Palermaa of Finland and Kamilla Kjeldsen of Denmark.

The format for the tournament was 3 qualifying blocks of 8 games (totalling 24 games). The 1st block was bowled on Short Oil, the 2nd on long oil and the 3rd of mixed oil (long oil on the left lane and short on the right lane of every pair of lanes).
