ACTTBA State Championships – CANCELLED

On Monday 16 March 2020 the ACTTBA Board made a difficult decision to cancel the 2020 ACTTBA State Championships which were to begin this weekend. This decision was based on the advice and information provided from TBA on Monday to State Boards regarding COVID-19 and the safety of the bowling community. While ACT may be considered to be low risk regarding COVID-19 at this stage, the Board agreed that the decision to cancel is in the best interest of all our bowlers and broader community.

All Entrants will be entitled to a full refund and will receive an email with details how this will be processed. 

Australian Junior Championships – CANCELLED  

TBA announced yesterday that the Australian Junior Championships scheduled to be held at ZONE BOWLING Mt Gravatt in April has been cancelled until further notice. The ACT team manager will manage and communicate outcomes.

Individuals in the ACT Presidents Shield team are congratulated and will be recognised for their achievements in making the team and will still be receiving their uniform including shirts and jackets.

National Disability Championships – CANCELLED

TBA in conjunction with the Australian Disability Tenpin (ADT) have made the decision to cancel the upcoming National Tenpin Bowling Championship for Persons with a Disability in June 2020 at ZONE BOWLING Mt Gravatt. This event will not be run in 2020.

TBA is currently working with Australian Disability Tenpin (ADT) on ensuring refunds for entries are processed. Due to the high number of entrants, please allow some time for this process to be completed. All bowlers will receive correspondence from ADT or TBA in the coming weeks updating you on this process.

The Masters events include the Youth Open Masters, Disabilities Open Masters and the Adult Open Masters and are a total scratch pinfall event played over 7 games.

Bowlers may participate in multiple Masters events and where they are contested at the same time will be able to use 1 set of scores in both divisions. If a bowler progresses to the next stage (where applicable) in multiple events at the same time they will be required to nominate the final they would like to participate in. The payment amount for multiple Masters events will be at the discretion of the Tournament Committee.

CUP EVENTS

The Cup events include the Junior Restricted Cup, Disabilities Classic Cup, Disabilities Restricted Cup, Seniors Cup and the Adult Restricted Cup and are a total handicap pinfall event played over 7 games.
