The inaugural Suncity Inclusion Cup will take place at the home of the Para Bowling World Cup this weekend at the AGL National High-Performance centre on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The event’s first running will also become the first-ever inclusion division ranked event to take place in Australian tenpin bowling.

The successful delivery of last year’s International Bowling Federation (IBF) World Cup and Para Bowling World Cups on Australian soil was a major coup for the sport of Tenpin Bowling in this country and the Sunshine Coast region. Pleasingly, the legacy of the events will roll on in 2023 with more opportunities for people with a disability to bowl.

The inaugural event will be hosted at the AGL National High-Performance Centre on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland from 25th to 26th February 2023. In addition, the event will become the first event of the newly adopted Inclusion Division in TBA’s National Rankings System. 

“Tenpin Bowling Australia is committed to providing more opportunities for bowlers with a disability,” said TBA CEO Rohan O’Neill. “You would be hard-pressed to find a better location for a bowling tournament than the AGL National High-Performance Centre on the Sunshine Coast. There is always something to see and do on the Sunshine Coast, and we can’t wait to welcome bowlers to the inaugural Inclusion Division ranked event”.

Conducted over two days (25 & 26 February), the first day will see bowlers compete in stage one, where they will complete 12 games in two appearances of six games for seedings.

All bowlers will return on Sunday where pinfall will drop before completing another seven games.

The top three for each gender will advance to the three-person stepladder final to crown the inaugural champions.

Tenpin Bowling Australia wishes all participants the best of luck and high scoring.
