From the Chairman – Jerome Joseph
TBA has embarked on an exciting journey to evolve and grow our wonderful sport, with 2021 sure to be a transformational year. Recently our board has approved and is implementing a new strategy. At its simplest our vision is, to create a thriving tenpin industry that engages and connects communities through play and skill. Sitting underneath this are the following 4 key pillars that will drive all our activities going forward.
- The Business of Bowling – Profitable centres providing awesome experiences
- Playful Connections – More people playing the sport and connecting through tenpin bowling
- A Striking Force – Provide opportunities for elite bowlers to excel and support them to maximise their talent
- Pinned Together – All stakeholders within the sport collaborating and driving to an agreed outcome and clear goals
This reinvigoration has driven recent new appointments that you may have seen and are pivotal to capitalise on our future success. However, this has left a vacuum of long-term internal bowling knowledge from recent senior departures.
“We are focussed on driving towards our vision together. The board has acknowledged significant bowling knowledge has exited the organisation through Cara Honeychurch, Chris Rushton, and Kelly Warren departures,” said TBA Chair Jerome. “We are ensuring that all our staff, and in particular our new executive hires have access to a group of experienced advisors they can call upon where needed”.
A new initiative has been approved by the board to fill this gap known as the Tenpin Bowling Operational Advisory Council (TBAOAC) to commence in January 2021.
Objective – to provide bowling and bowler knowledge to all staff that fast tracks and enhances intelligence of the sport, our stakeholders, and participants.
Who – the Council will consist of 3 Bowling representative Directors and 3 External TBA members that have longevity and expertise within our sport.
Purpose – the Council will serve as a centre of expertise for all staff where they’re able to source information and or advice regarding clarification or background information about our sport and its stakeholders.
