Hundreds of teenage and junior bowlers from every State and Territory in Australia compete in tenpin bowling’s annual Junior National Championship - a two-week bowling extravaganza that happens in April! The first Junior Championship was held at St Leonards in Sydney NSW back in 1971.  The first President's Junior Interstate Shield was at Cross Road Bowl in Adelaide, South Australia in 1974.

Not quite the next Jason Belmonte?

That's okay because Tenpin Bowling Australia’s Junior National Championship is for all abilities with each section graded. 

You can compete in singles, doubles and teams events.  There are lots of other fun events to compete in along the way depending on your average, including the popular Royal Rumble, the Bumper Challenge, and the Junior Scotch Doubles.

Adding to the excitement and hectic schedule of pin-flying action of several individual and team events, there is the prestigious TBA Junior Masters, as well as the TBA Classic Cup and the TBA Restricted Cup.  A colourful highlight of the Championship is the President’s Junior Interstate Shield, a hotly-contested team event.

The Junior Nationals is also the catalyst for coaching seminars, sport science forums etc. for parents, guardians and junior bowlers.  An important part of TBA’s role as the national governing body for the sport is its responsibility for the development and education of young athletes.  TBA works closely with, and is strongly supported by the Australian Sports Commission in every aspect of its role to regulate, develop and promote the sport of tenpin bowling in Australia.
