Our organisation aims to increase the participation of the sport of Tenpin Bowling and to provide opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved in the sport.
We offer several programs which increase the participation of Tenpin Bowling within Queensland and these include initiatives aimed at school aged children as well as adults. Our school based programs include the Roll 'n Strike in-school program, which gives schools access to portable bowling kits provided by TBAQ, which are sponsored by bowling centres throughout Queensland and are provided free of charge. An extension of our Roll ‘n Strike in-school program is our Roll ‘n Strike Learn to play leagues which are offered to students throughout Queensland so they can put into practice what they have learned on real lanes in bowling centres. TBAQ also runs a Queensland Inter-school Challenge Tournament for Primary and Secondary Schools.
On top of our school programs we also offer state development coaching clinics, junior and adult tournaments throughout the year, university partnerships where we teach students studying education how to deliver a Roll ‘n Strike lesson and run programs/sessions for associations such as Sporting Wheelies.
TBAQ also runs a March and November Madness which offers free bowling to people with disabilities, once a week for 4 weeks. This is endorsed by the bowling centres which host the event as well as several organisations which help facilitate people with disabilities participation in sport.
