Women’s Health Week

By Emily Rennes
September 6, 2021

Tenpin Bowling Australia is supporting Jean Hailes Women’s Health Week (6-10 September 2021) in acknowledgment of the impact sport can have on health.

Like the ambitions of this initiative, we want to link women within their community and help them support each other to make healthy decisions.

We know that bowling can be a fun and easy physical activity and mental wellbeing support for girls, women, and their families of all ages and abilities. This week we’ll highlight many of the women who say bowling is one of the best things they’ve ever done, including World Cup Champion Bec Whiting, Lane Ranger Sarah Pennicott, and Emma Blunden – a young bowler with a bright future.

Where do we start though? Tenpin Bowling Australia encourages women to get to their local tenpin bowling centre, especially during Women’s Health Week, to enjoy a game or two. Whether alone or with family or friends – enquire about joining a league, look into coach training or check out some of our girls and women already enjoying the sport.

We know it’s not possible to visit the local tenpin bowling centres in many places across Australia right now. Why not have a go at our Bowl @ Home resources (bowlabilities.com.au/participants/bowl-at-home or bowlpatrol.com.au/participants/bowl-at-home) or start your journey to becoming a tenpin bowling coach online via Lane Ranger or a Level 1 course.
