SingaporeBowling (SBF), formerly known as Singapore Tenpin Bowling Congress, was constituted in 1963.
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.
To instill into SingaporeBowling a spirit of integrity, professionalism and public spiritedness
SingaporeBowling had a new Logo from May 2005.
This logo is designed with the bowling pin as the main object of the visual, which represents the sport. Using a brush-like stroke, it symbolizes the ease and freedom of bowling as a sport.
Red & White are the main colours for the logo where these colours symbolize the colours of our National State Flag.
