What is the Joint Management Committee?

For several years, TBA and the Australian Disabilities Tenpin Inc Organisation has staged its own successful National Championship.  However both organisations could see the enormous value in bringing the championships together with the view to providing the best outcomes and benefits for people with a disability and the sport of tenpin bowling throughout Australia.

In July 2012, Tenpin Bowling Australia Ltd established a joint management committee (JMC) to oversee the unification and provide a framework to develop the best experiences and competition opportunities for bowlers with a disability.

Committee members represent key organisations involved with the championships including Tenpin Bowling Australia, Australian Disabilities Tenpin Inc. and the Australian Sports Commission.

Current JMC Committee Members
Michael Cooke, Don Atkinson, Allan Hatton, Beth Boyd, Chris Rushton, Matt Stevens

All enquiries for the JMC can be emailed to and these can be forwarded to specific JMC members.
