Bundy Bowl and Leisure Centre has this week hosted the State Disabilities Tenpin Centres Challenge, with a number of competitors returning for the 24th year of the event.

Managing Director Peter McElligott said the challenge started in 1998.

He said this year, three centres from across the state competed in the two-day competition.

“This year’s event had three centres taking part including Brisbane’s Logan City, Rockhampton and Bundaberg,” Peter said.

“Bundaberg has always been great for sports men and women and tenpin bowling has had some great competitors that have gone on to play for Queensland and win medals at nationals.

“Tenpin Bowling has one of the highest participation rates of any sport in Australia for bowlers with a disability.”

Peter said it was rewarding to host an event that had such a longstanding history.

“The best part is always seeing the players each year,” he said.

“Some bowlers have been attending this event since 1998 when the annual event started.”

The event was run over two days, Wednesday 5 October and Thursday 6 October.
