Australia's Only National Junior Tenpin Bowling program

Bowl Patrol is Australia’s only national junior tenpin bowling program designed specifically for primary school-aged children. It is an 8 session program that is adaptable and utilises modifications to make learning to bowl fun. It teaches the fundamental skills of the sport, improves co-ordination and balance, allows all abilities to play within the same program. Bowl Patrol is FAST, FUN and ACTIVE and promotes skill development, a sense of achievement, socialisation and teamwork.
