Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) proudly announces another year of remarkable achievement in our Sporting Schools program. For two consecutive years, we have surpassed the 10,000 participants mark. This consistent success marks a significant milestone in promoting the sport among school-aged children across the nation, a significant leap from around 4,000 participants in 2019.

A continued rise in participation is a testament to the growing popularity of Tenpin Bowling in the school sports curriculum. This represents an astounding 168% increase in participation since 2019, illustrating just how rapidly the sport has been embraced across Australia. The program’s flexibility, allowing play in both bowling centres and school environments, has been instrumental in this growth, and all parts of the country are getting involved, including the regional town of Broome in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.

“Our commitment to introducing young Australians to tenpin bowling has never been stronger. Reaching 10,000 participants this year is a symbol of the sport’s growing popularity and our dedication to nurturing the next generation of bowlers. We are excited to see where this momentum takes us in the next few years.” said TBA’s National Participation Manager, Sean O’Kane.

“From some slight changes across 2023 to our Schools Tenpin Bowling offering, we’ve seen schools able to bowl in their own environment, meaning schools can still bowl in a centre, but schools as remote as Broome, Kangaroo Island, Darwin and Leeman (Western Australia) have also been able to take part.”

Tenpin Bowling will be offered to Primary Schools, Specialist Schools and, for the first time, to Years 7 & 8 across Australia in 2024 as part of the Sporting Schools program.
