Year 9 & 10 Tenpin Bowling Program Piloted in Term 3 with the Australian Sports Commission
The initiative aimed to diversify school sports choices, giving teens a taste of something different from the usual sports. Feedback from the students was overwhelmingly positive.
Woodcroft College in South Australia Year 9 student, Samara, who experienced bowling for the first time, couldn’t contain her excitement, “I’ve never been bowling, I love it! It’s something I want to keep playing after the program has finished.”
A total of 1,416 students participated in the program in Term 3.
Tenpin Bowling is now part of the Year 7 & 8 Sporting Schools Program
“We are looking forward to more students and young people learning Tenpin Bowling in their school through the assistance of the Year 7 and 8 program and transitioning through to their local Bowling Centre and enjoying a lifelong sport.”
Rohan O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer, Tenpin Bowling Australia
