Who needs to register with TBA?

If you bowl in a league at a TBA-registered centre, registration with TBA is a must. Here’s why:

  • For the Bowlers: Every bowler participating in league play within a TBA registered centre is expected to register. This ensures you’re part of a recognised and standardized bowling community that is also recognised by the Australian Sports Commission.
  • For the Centres: Your registration is essential to help your bowling centre maintain its TBA-registered status. Centres need their league bowlers registered with TBA to uphold their certification.

In essence, if you’re passionate about league bowling and your centre is TBA-registered, your registration plays a vital role in maintaining the sport’s integrity and standards. Join us and be an integral part of the bowling community!

How & Where to Register with TBA

1. Traditional Membership Centres:

  • Online Registration: Bowlers from centres with the traditional membership model can easily register online through our partner, TenpinResults. Upon registering online, your membership will instantly become active and visible.
  • In-Person Registration: If you prefer to register directly at your bowling centre, they’ll gather your details. Once done, the centre will forward your data to TBA for record updates.

Remember, all TBA registrations are managed on TenpinResults, our dedicated partner for registration and results.

2. Lane-Levy Centres:

  • In-Centre Guidance: If you’re bowling at a lane-levy centre, please consult with your centre’s management. They’ll guide you on the payment process for your TBA registration.
  • Automatic Registration: For bowlers at lane-levy centres equipped with TenpinResults technology, you’ll be automatically recognised as TBA registered members after you’ve played 9 league games.
  • Manual Registration: For bowlers at lane-levy centres not equipped with TenpinResults capability, centres will gather your details and forward data to be processed by TBA for updating of records.

Whichever your centre type, ensuring you’re registered with TBA enhances your bowling experience and contributes to the broader community. Get registered and hit the lanes with confidence!

Why is there a local association fee included in my registration fees?

The inclusion of a local association fee in registration charges has been a long-standing practice at TBA. We’ve always provided centres and their respective associations the option to incorporate a modest local association fee on top of the standard registration fees.

This additional fee plays a crucial role in enabling local associations to conduct their operations effectively and serve their members better. It ensures they have the necessary resources to promote the sport, organise events, and continue to offer support at a local level.

If you notice a local association fee on your registration invoice, it’s because your centre, in collaboration with the local association, has chosen to include this fee as an integral component of the TBA registration process. This collective decision is rooted in the shared commitment to further nurture and develop the sport at a grassroots level.
