Tenpin Strikes it Big Time at Schools

TBAQ provides an in- school version of tenpin bowling called “Roll ‘n Strike” to Primary Schools in Queensland.

RNS Equipment

In 2020, TBAQ in partnership with bowling centres across Queensland helped to reach 77,162 school students with the Roll ‘n Strike program. TBAQ receive many testimonials from Teachers in Queensland who use our school program.  One such testimonial from HPE teacher, Janet McAfee of St Bernard’s Primary School, the testimonial reads:

Hi Dylan

Just thought I would send in some sort of testimonial about your bowling opportunities.

I have been using the Ten-pin bowling equipment on and off over the last 10-12 years.

My students and I love it for a number of reasons.

Kids love the fact that they are playing /using equipment that is “just like the real stuff” their words. They love the fact that they can have lots of goes, can play a simple game with their friends,  and some who do not find other traditional sports easy, love the fact that they can knock the pins down. They love being able to play with their friends in both a competitive and a co-operative game.

I love it for a few reasons

  • kids learn skills of bowling, target practice, using opposing foot/hand etc.
  • team play and learning to all take on a role for the team
  • learning to coach others
  • learning to score
  • appreciating others talents and also limitations
  • learning to show respect for other people’s property and treat the equipment with respect.
  • learning team play and support 

learning to cheer other teams.

Many social and emotional as well as physical attributes are learnt in this game.  And it free and accessible to all schools!!! Not a common thing these days.

 

If you would like your school to participate in the Roll ‘n Strike program contact the office on 07 3876 5400 or contact our development officers directly.
