Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) is pleased to announce the confirmed dates for our upcoming National Championship events for Adult, Youth, and Senior age groups.

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Sunshine Coast, all three championships will take place at the AGL National High-Performance Centre throughout October and November 2024.

Nathan Stein, TBA’s National Bowling & Operations Manager, expressed his excitement about the upcoming events, stating, “After a tremendously successful National Junior Championship earlier this year, we are eager to host three more national championships this year. We’ve tailored these events to be inclusive, providing every bowler, regardless of skill level, a platform to compete and excel.”
