Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) is pleased to announce the athletes selected for the 2024 Chemist Warehouse National Training Squad (NTS) for bowlers over 50 and over 65.

The NTS 50 squad consists of athletes who are aged 50 years or older. The NTS 65 squad consists of athletes who are aged 65 or older.

The selection process for the squad involved a combination of methods:

  • NTS Trials held in December 2023 – Top 4 eligible finishers in each of Male and Female squads, received automatic invites to the 2024 NTS Squads.
  • Selections to fill the squad was determined by the selection panel.
  • The ‘Selection Requirements for National Teams Policy’ was followed as part of the selection process.

Eric Jang has stepped down from his duties as head coach for 2024. We thank Eric for his outstanding contribution over the years and wish him well on his future endeavours. 

Tenpin Bowling Australia would like to congratulate Bob Whybrow and Bill Gardiner who will work in tandem coaching the NTS 50 and NTS 65 squads. This follows several years in the assistant coach positions for both, and we congratulate them on their progression.  Team Manager Janine Matheson will continue in her duties for 2024.

Selections for NTS18, NTS 21 and NTS Inclusion will be released in coming weeks following the completion of the upcoming inaugural NTS 18 and NTS 21 Trials next weekend on the Sunshine Coast.

Tenpin Bowling Australia would like to thank all applicants for this year’s intake and congratulates the new squad members for 2024.
