Personal Accident Insurance

Insurance: Your Safety Net On and Off the Lanes

Accidents can happen unexpectedly, and we want to ensure you’re protected when they do.  As a TBA registered member, you’re covered with Personal Accident Insurance.  But what does this mean for you?
Personal Accident Insurance (PAI): This is your insurance as a bowler.  If you face an unfortunate incident resulting in bodily injury while participating in a bowling event or league, PAI steps in to help cover medical expenses, loss of income and other related costs you might incur due to the accident.  Cover is subject to the policy limits and terms & conditions of the policy wording.  Please contact the TBA should you wish to receive a copy of these documents.
Covered activities include all TBA-accredited events, playing, training, official social events and fundraising activities, as well as travel to and from these activities in TBA-registered centres in Australia.
Personal Accident Insurance covers non-Medicare covered medical expenses, the most common being private hospital bed & theatre fees, dental, ambulance, chiropractic, physiotherapy and osteopathy-related expenses, up to the policy sum insured.
The non-Medicare coverage is part of government legislation that prevents general insurers from covering Medicare-related costs, including the Medicare Gap, so only NON-MEDICARE items are claimable.
Please note, the above advice is general in nature.  As with all insurance products, terms & conditions apply, and claims are subject to assessment & approval of the insurer.

Let’s not forget about the intangible benefits of bowling!



Engage in an activity that enhances physical health by promoting muscle strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance. Experience the fitness benefits each time you bowl!



Bowling is a versatile social experience suitable for everyone. Whether you’re aiming for some solitary practice, challenging an online rival, engaging in friendly league competition, or just playing for the sheer joy of it, the lanes are always welcoming. It’s an ideal backdrop for birthdays, corporate events, reunions, and any kind of celebration. Between frames, indulge in lively chats, root for your teammates, or consider joining a special event. It’s all about community, camaraderie, and creating lasting memories.



Bowling is a timeless sport with a pathway for every enthusiast. Whether you’re delighting in occasional games, immersing in league play, or setting up consistent matches, there’s a lane for you. The beauty of bowling is its adaptability: you can glide from casual, friendly games straight to intense competition on the Professional Bowlers Association circuit, facing off against the globe’s elite. At every turn, it’s about progression, passion, and potential realised.



Bowling is more than just a game; it’s a journey of self-growth and skill enhancement. Each frame thrown strengthens neural connections, fostering cognitive development. As you set and achieve new personal bests, you’re not just refining your technique but also expanding your horizons. Beyond the lanes, you can evolve into roles like team management, coaching, committee participation, or even immerse in the operational side of a tenpin bowling centre. Dive into bowling, and discover endless avenues for personal and professional growth.



Tenpin bowling embraces everyone, transcending age, size, speed, or strength barriers. With its objective scoring and flexibility, participants can adapt it to fit any schedule or group size. It demands a blend of mental precision, physical finesse, endurance, and expertise. As a safe, inclusive, and community-focused sport, tenpin bowling promises a lifetime of camaraderie and competition
