The bowling community is rallying together to raise money for the bushfire appeal.

The Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) office has received a number of calls asking if it’s ok for them to create fundraising activities for the cause. TBA encourages bowlers to create their own fund raising initiatives for the worthy cause.

TBA is also happy to add information about fundraising activities to this page for all bowlers to view and participate in.

This page will serve as a bulletin board of fundraising efforts of those that have asked and sent TBA information.

If you are creating a fundraising activity for the bush fire appeal and would like it put on this page, please contact [email protected] with details that you want communicated.



Queensland based bowlers George Frilingos and Dale Stewart raised $900 for the Red Cross Bush Fire appeal last weekend at Caboolture Tenpin.

A pledge of $2.50 per strike thrown and $1 per spare was made by the pair during the 2020 Queensland World Cup of Champions at Caboolture Tenpin. The efforts were coupled with contributions from other bowlers and spectators in the centre which contributed to the $900 raised.

From the success of this, a group of bowlers are proposing that National Training Squad (NTS) members bowling in the QLD Hammer Senior Classic to join in with the fundraising efforts.

Starting on the 17th January at Caboolture Tenpin, the bowlers will aim to raise a reasonable amount once again for the Red Cross Bushfire appeal.

Caboolture Tenpin staff have committed to the efforts and will be running a raffle with several prizes on offer. A collection container at the bowl will be available for those at the bowl to contribute.

All proceeds raised will be going to the Red Cross Bushfire appeal.

For more information or if you would like to sponsor any of the NTS bowlers in their efforts throughout the Hammer Classic, please contact Dale Stewart on 0432 566 557 / [email protected] OR Suz Wenzel [email protected]
