There's so much to love about tenpin bowling in Brisbane. From the good-old-fashioned family competition to the yummy drinks and snacks on-site, to that glorious sound you hear every time you hit a strike, bowling is one of our favourite things to do as a family. 

If you're a tenpin bowling novice, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about? Tenpin bowling has been a popular family activity in Australia for yonks and for good reason. Along with getting everyone together enjoying some healthy competition, bowling is a great way for kids to work on their coordination, practise their maths, and stretch their muscles trying to maneuver those pretty heaving bowling balls! And if you haven't yet had the pleasure, tenpin bowling alleys are an awesome venue to host your next kid's birthday party.
