The centre have great Lane Rangers, friendly and enthusiastic staff, amazing customer service and developmental opportunities for all participants. Logan City Tenpin had a total of 35 participants in 2020, with the feedback from parents and patrollers always really positive. Logan City Tenpin also focus on creating a pathway for their Patrollers, with many of their Patrollers entering a league following the program.

2020 QLD Lane Ranger of the Year is Emily Bottomley from Logan City Tenpin. Emily is always enthusiastic, passionate and friendly, making her a favourite with the Patrollers. Bowl Patrol programs at Logan City Tenpin consistently have a high number of participants in their programs, and Emily is always supportive of the learner bowlers. Her knowledge and experience is invaluable when delivering the program, with participants continuing to bowl in competitions and develop the skills they have learned once they have completed the program. During the strict COVID-19 restrictions, she applied the rules with care so Patrollers were comfortable and safe during their program.

The junior ranks of bowlers in Queensland continues to grow, congratulations to the Queensland Girl and Boy Bowl Patrol winners of 2020. The winners have been selected based on their commitment to the Bowl Patrol program, their ability to listen to the Lane Ranger and consistently put in effort each week throughout the duration of the 8 week program.
