Tenpin Bowling Australia, in consultation with industry, are passionate advocates of increasing participation in tenpin bowling through dedicated and nationally recognised participation programs

TBA currently offers three national participation programs – Bowl Patrol, Sporting Schools and Bowl Abilities , all aimed at growing participation in our great sport.

Bowl Patrol is Australia’s only national in-centre tenpin bowling program designed specifically for primary school children.  An 8 week program, Bowl Patrol is aimed at creating striking machines whilst having fun and making new friends.  Participants can use their sport vouchers to cover the cost of the program (all states and territories excluding VIC and ACT).

TBA is proud to partner with Sport Australia in the Sporting Schools initiative, to offer tenpin bowling free to primary school children and their families, to help students build the confidence and capability to be active for life.    

Bowl Abilities is TBA’s newest participation program! Bowl Abilities is a modified, learn to bowl program for older teens and adults with a disability.
