In view of the recent directives for Non-Contact Sports to resume activities, Tenpin Bowling SA, would like to submit the following.

This document outlines the safe return of our Bowlers to league bowling. Our main aim is to commence with our league activities in a safe environment.

Our sport is played across 6 regions, Johannesburg Central, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni, KwaZulu Natal, Midlands (Pietermaritzburg), Port Elizabeth and Cape Town Central. We participate in leagues and tournaments in indoor bowling facilities in these regions. Our members bowl weekly leagues on weeknight evenings in their closest centres.

These bowling alleys are privately owned, and are private businesses. The Federation hosts leagues and National Tournaments in these centres in the various Regions.

Our National Tournaments have been postponed for the months of July, August, September and October 2020. We have made provision for an Interprovincial Championship which has been scheduled for 14 to 22 November 2020, at Planet X Bowl, in Pietermaritzburg.
