Why tenpin bowling is the best way to keep the kids entertained in the school holidays

If you are looking for a great way to spend quality time with your family, tenpin bowling is the perfect activity. It is not weather dependent, gets the kids moving and challenges their minds and body.

Tenpin bowling offers so much more than bowling

Many tenpin bowling alleys offer several bowling-oriented and non-bowling activities targeted at children, teenagers and even toddlers.

Activities at Highlands Entertainment Centre include:

  • 10 lanes of fun
  • Kids’ birthday parties
  • Christmas parties
  • Junior bowling tournaments
  • 18 holes of mini golf
  • Disco lighting and music
  • Amusement arcade machines

Tenpin bowling is physically and mentally challenging

Kids of all ages can play tenpin bowling but parental guidance is recommended. In addition to the safety aspect, adults can guide younger players with tenpin bowling game pointers like the proper way to hold the bowling ball, “throw” the ball, and the right positioning of the body – especially when it’s their first time.

Tenpin bowling provides a hidden maths lesson

Although the computers tally the score, kids need to work out how many pins they still need to knock down in order to calculate their score or catch up / stay ahead of their opponents.

Tenpin can improve hand-eye coordination

Swinging the bowling ball and hitting the pins requires hand-eye coordination. This stimulates mental alertness, concentration and tactical strategy.

Tenpin bowling is affordable

With tenpin bowling games starting at $12 for concession and $17 for adults, tenpin bowling is an affordable day or night out. An 18-hole game of mini golf is $12 for concession and $17 for adults. View Highlands Entertainment Centre prices here.
