Roll ‘n Strike

The highly successful Roll ‘n Strike program is the best way for newcomers to learn to bowl. The program is broken down into two distinct programs which work hand in hand with the Inter-school program to provide a clear pathway for athlete and skill development.


Roll ‘n Strike In-School Program (Free!)


Roll 'n Strike Kits

The first program is the Roll ‘n’ Strike In-School Program which is available completely free to primary schools in Queensland for a 5 week period each year. The program reaches over 200 schools and 70,000 children throughout Queensland. Kids absolutely love using the kits, and the Roll ‘n Strike program provides the perfect opportunity to teach skills that the kids want to learn! This program has been developed to teach children the sport of Tenpin Bowling whilst ensuring they have fun and are learning at the same time. The lessons are designed so that children have as little down time as possible, and everyone has a role to play!

Schools are able to utilise the kits with modified lanes, balls and pins as well as access to a teacher’s manual and videos. The manual has all of the lessons plans and games that you could ever need and you don’t need to be an expert to lead the program. The videos provide further assistance with lesson and key point demonstrations. You can read more about the program and/or book the kits from the Roll ‘n Strike In-School Program page now! Book now to secure your chosen time period!


Roll ‘n Strike Learn to Bowl League


The second program is the Roll ‘n’ Strike Learn to Bowl League which is open to people of any age, runs for 10-weeks and is delivered at your local bowling centre by a qualified and nationally accredited coach. This program teaches participants how to bowl correctly right from the start, starting with how to choose the right ball. This program is perhaps the fastest way to learn to bowl at a bowling centre. Pre-booking is essential and can only be done here on the TBAQ website. You can pre-purchase your first 10-weeks for just $95 (less than $10 per week!), which includes a Roll ‘n Strike training shirt, family discounts at your local bowling centre. Please contact centres directly for more information.


When learning any skill it is always good to have something to train for to help with your motivation. That is where the Queensland Tenpin Bowling Inter-School Challenge comes in. You can find out all about it by visiting the Inter-School Challenge page.
