Tenpin Bowling


Make sure you book a lane at the Alice Springs Dust Bowl to see some fancy footwork. This is a skills-based sport with a focus on movement, targeting, coordination and balance – and where the word ‘strike’ is music to a Tenpin bowler’s ears. With opportunities for all levels of skill to take part, this is a game which is right up the alley of participants and fans alike.
