The first leg of the Swedish Youth Tour (SYT) for this year took place on Sunday in Helsingborg.

Winners included Kajsa Samuelsson in the Girls' U21 category, Kevin Fahlström in the Boys' U16 category, and Anton Andersson in the Boys' U21 category.

This year's SYT features varied qualification and final formats across its four tournaments. In Helsingborg's Olympia Bowling, where the Storm Lucky Larsen Masters will take place from August 23 to September 1, qualifiers consisted of ten games per category. The top eight girls in the U21 category and the top eight boys in the U16 category advanced to the finals, while the top sixteen boys in the U21 category moved forward.

Finalists carried their qualification scores into an eight-game series. The top two players then faced off, with the runner-up needing to win two series to claim victory.
