ACT Tenpin Bowling Association

Traditionally regarded as a great social activity for young and old, Tenpin Bowling is also considered a serious sport in Australia and more so overseas. Our sport is being adopted by people of all abilities, age groups, and interests, with everybody coming together into a community of members who share a common interest and - more importantly - are being active.

Locally, bowlers in either end of town have access to a modern and expansive bowling centre that offers choices to suit your lifestyle and budget - pick your preferred day of the week and there will probably be some form of league available at a time that fits your lifestyle.

ACT bowlers have represented Australia at the highest levels and because this sport is playable well into later life, it's never too late to start. Of course, bowling offers local and State events in addition to nightly leagues to help you build up to that level.

Bowlers with a disability (Tuggeranong area): Independent Disabled Tenpin Bowlers of the ACT

IDTBACT has been around in one form or another for a very long time and specialise in integrating bowlers with a disability into competition with able-bodied bowlers. They run a league on Saturday mornings that's open to all bowlers and have been working with the State and National bodies to improve recognition and opportunities for bowlers with a disability.
