Tenpin City is located on the rooftop of Lidcombe Power Centre. After a shopping trip to Anaconda and Spotlight, we went in one day for a quick bowling game and ended up signing my son for the 10for10 children league program in 2014. He now proudly owns his very own bowling ball.
Tenpin City has a great league program for kids from the age of 6 years to 13years old. The 10for10 program is $10 a week (2 games) for 10 weeks and they get a FREE bowling ball to keep! Which kid doesn't like the idea of owning their own bowling ball?
You can sign up at any time throughout the year, your child will participate with the current children bowling league 'The Mighty Midgets' every Saturday morning starting at 9:30am. The session begins with a warm up exercise drill to stretch those important muscles used for bowling, followed by a few warm up rounds of bowling before the game starts. The children will learn about the sport and the techniques to help them improve their game throughout the weeks.
It's lots of fun knocking down those pins and the child with the highest average for the week will receive a 'Star Bowler' award and get a coupon for 1 free game.
On completion of the 10th week, your child can choose a ball from a variety of colours from leading brands such Brunswick, Columbia, Ebonite etc. The ball will also be custom drilled to fit their little fingers, what a great reward for just coming along and having fun!
By chance if your child really likes the sport and wants to continue with the league, The Australian Junior Championship is around April of each year.
If your child is interested to see 'behind the scenes' of the bowling alley and is curious about how the machine technology returns the ball, collect the pins and set them up again, ask the coach for a tour - it is quiet fascinating.
