Swindon Bats Sports & Social Club for Visually Impaired People – Activities

Tenpin Bowling

We regularly meet on Wednesdays from 12.30 pm to play tenpin bowling at Swindon Tenpin, Shaw Ridge Leisure Park, Whitehill Way, Swindon, SN5 7DN.

 

NBTBA – some players are members of the National Blind Tenpin Bowling Association but this is not a requirement for playing with Swindon Bats on Wednesdays.  We also have members who just want to come and play for fun and not be involved in competitions. 

 

Corporate Matches - Zurich Community Trust has been one of our supporters for several years and regularly plays us at tenpin bowling.  It also organises an inter-company match which is held annually to help raise money for Swindon Bats.  We have also enjoyed matches with Wootton Bassett Rotary Club who have challenged us to skittles matches in return.
