About Us

SingaporeBowling (SBF), formerly known as Singapore Tenpin Bowling Congress, was constituted in 1963.

History

Tenpin Bowling was initially confined to the private lanes of the American Club for obvious reasons – the sport was already a flourishing multi-million dollar industry with it’s popularity among Americans of all ages, forcing the export of this US-penchant to the rest of the world, including Singapore.

Singaporeans were finally provided its first public centre when Jackie’s Bowl Orchard opened her doors to 12-hour long waiting lists of curious locals on Christmas Eve in 1965. The highly technical nature of the sport has made excellent ball sense insufficient to carry a bowler with great potential, to the pinnacle. The ability to read the lanes – much like a golfer reading the putting green – comes through proper instruction and practice. The ability to deliver the ball accurately all the time comes through getting the body mechanics fine-tuned and well balanced so that all that can be done has been done to facilitate a perfect delivery.
