Local tenpin bowlers Siew Irene Lim and Damian McFarlane know more than many about how to bowl the perfect strike. With the downtime provided during recent restrictions, the pair have been busy learning how to pass these skills on to the next generation.
“During this break we both completed Tenpin Bowling Australia’s newly released Online Lane Ranger training course and continued personal development further by becoming accredited Level 1 Tenpin Bowling Coaches. The knowledge gained through both courses will assist us to better support the growth and development of Bowl Patrollers and bowlers in the ACT.”
They’re very excited to put into practice what they’ve learnt, when the nationally-recognised ‘learn to bowl’ program, Bowl Patrol, returns to ZONE Bowling Tuggeranong, Wednesdays at 4pm on 21 October. The inclusive program features resources created in partnership with Autism Spectrum Australia, teaching solid fundamentals: the approach, the swing, the delivery and game play.
Damian and Irene agree the most rewarding part of being a Lane Ranger is seeing the children’s confidence grow every week, the smiles and excitement when they get a strike, spare, a new band or just seeing that ball hit the pins for the first time!
“Our weekly goal as Lane Rangers is to ensure that all bowlers enjoy, have fun, learn something new and, most importantly, look forward to returning the following week and beyond.”
