Tenpin Bowling Australia Process regarding Rules enquiries and League support

This process has been developed to enable TBA to continue to enhance our support of local administrators relating to tournament, league and rules enquiries.

The process includes a generic email address to capture all enquiries, with further developments planned that include an online ticketing system and a customer support system to provide timely support. Click here to read more
