TBA offers an extensive range of awards to recognise our members’ achievements.  Starting at 50 for juniors and 125 for adults, no matter what your average* we want to recognise your success.  You can apply for awards each year – so why not aim high and collect the full set! 

When a bowler successfully applies for their first award, they will receive a Header Badge (only supplied once to each bowler) along with the award bar*.

High Games and High Series Plaques

TBA administers the high game and high series award plaques. Awards must be applied for by either your league secretary or a representative from your local centre, with the correct application form and game score sheet. Whilst all care is taken to ensure the engraving, TBA takes no responsibility for incorrectly spelt names or other incorrect details engraved on your chosen item. 

Please click on the link below to access the appropriate order forms for high game or series. Award recipients are required to be a TBA registered player in a TBA registered centre.

Applications for “Plaque Awards” must also be accompanied by the TBA verification sheet and score sheet printout.

How Do I Claim an Award?

If you bowl in one of over 70 centres across the country utilising our specialist software, you’ll be notified via email when you have won an award – usually within 24 hours as long as we have your email address. We’ll notify you of the award you’ve won and give you the option to order your award online which will then be sent to your bowling centre within a few weeks. 

We Need Your Email Address!

In order to be notified of your achievement, we must have your email address.  To update your details simply log into your account at  If you haven’t logged on before and don’t know your TBA number, simply use our lookup function here to get started.
If you have any difficulties feel free to email [email protected].

If you bowl in a centre that does not use our software, you are of course still entitled to your awards but you’ll have to order them manually through our partner United Tenpin Bowling Association. Click on the link below for the order form.
