Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) has welcomed the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) launch of its new strategic vision outlining key focus areas for the next decade and beyond.
Labelled “Our Green and Gold decade of opportunity’, the strategic vision sets the target of establishing Australia as the world’s best sporting nation.
With the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games on the horizon, the ASC’s vision is that ‘sport has a place for everyone and delivers results that make Australia proud’ aligns with TBA’s efforts in both the participation and High-Performance sports sector.
“We are delighted with the objectives outlined by the Australian Sports Commission and support the direction they are taking Australian sport into the future,” said TBA Chief Executive Officer Rohan O’Neill.
“The coming decade provides an incredible opportunity for the sport to be highlighted in major events in Australia, and we are doing all we can for Tenpin Bowling to be one of the sports that help inspire the nation.
“Tenpin Bowling possesses great strength in the ability to cater to a wide range of participants allowing it to contribute strongly to the strategic goals outlined by the ASC.
“The sports elite athletes have also proven over a long period that they are some of the best in the world, and we look forward to working with the ASC in helping achieve our aligned goals,” added O’Neill.
The ASC will lead, support, and provide opportunities for all communities to be involved in sport, while growing elite success and representation, inspiring future generations.
“This is a defining era for Australian sport,” ASC Chair Josephine Sukkar AM said.
“The sporting strategies, programs and facilities we deliver now have the capacity to shape Australia’s long-term prosperity, well beyond sporting boundaries.
“A thriving Australian sport system is enormously influential to a thriving Australia.” added Sukkar.
Newly appointed CEO of the ASC, Kieren Perkin OAM commented on the exciting opportunities ahead.
“I truly believe we are entering one of the greatest periods of opportunity in Australia’s sporting history,” he said.
“Our most important job will be to put these words into action. Any game plan in sport is only as good as the way in which you deliver it.
“The reality is that for Australia to establish the world’s best sporting system, none of us here will be able to win alone.
“But if we can all be part of this together, we will achieve remarkable things. Not just for sport, but for Australia.”
As part of the strategic vision launch, the brand name Sport Australia is being retired with the ASC moving forward as one integrated organisation incorporating both participation and high-performance sport.
The ASC will continue to produce a rolling four-year Corporate Plan to operationalise this strategic vision and detail the key activities, targets and performance measures.
