Tenpin Bowling Australia is delighted to be announced as one of 24 organisations that will receive funding as part of Sport Australia’s Capability Building Grant Program.

The Sport Australia initiative supports the growth of small-to-medium Australian sports through its new $600,000 Capability Building Grant Program. The program aims to provide investment opportunities for small and medium sports to help build capability or support participation planning.

“These grants will provide some of the country’s smaller and emerging sports with valuable investment opportunities to support specific areas of need within their organisations,” stated Sport Australia Acting CEO Rob Dalton.

TBA’s funding application objective was to deliver a Governance Maturity Roadmap. As TBA continues its improvement journey, the project aims to enhance governance practices, systems, and processes, ultimately assisting the sport in delivering strategic outcomes.

“This is an area we have been working with Sport Australia, and it has been a continuing discussion point at Board level”, explained TBA CEO Rohan O’Neill.

“Ongoing improvement and assessment of our governance system is critical. A key pillar of the strategy, ‘Pinned Together’, is concentrated on working together as a sport. We strongly believe that improved governance practices within the sport will support the delivery of our strategic objectives at both state and national level”.

After consolidating outcomes established through implementing a national finance system, the funding will further strengthen the foundations required to continue enhancing the sport.

“The funding will support the delivery of a set of policies and frameworks for TBA and its State Associations that improves governance maturity, create efficiencies, builds knowledge, mitigates risk and enforces confident & effective engagement between stakeholders”, explained the TBA CEO.

Tenpin Bowling Australia would like to thank Sport Australia for its ongoing support in growing our capability in building the sport.
