Sporting Schools

Sporting Schools is a $430 million Sport Australia initiative designed to help schools increase children’s participation in sport and connect them with community sport opportunities.

Tenpin Bowling Australia is one of many National Sport Organisations to support the initiative. Have your school Principal register for a tenpin bowling program next term. Your child could do Bowl Patrol for free with Sporting Schools!
