President’s Message

UPDATED: July 2020


Message from the President of the H&DTPBA

As the newly elected President of the Hamilton & District Tenpin Association, I would like to welcome all our new and returning bowlers to the 2020/2021 season.

Last season was a difficult one for our bowlers, proprietors and all the executives of the HDTBA leagues. No one could have imagined how the season would be abruptly ended and the impact it would have on the sport of bowling.

At this time centres are gradually reopening as we enter Phase 3 of the government’s plan to safely restart our economy. Protocols have been put in place to ensure the safety of bowlers and the staff members who work in the industry.

I have experienced personally the new reality for our sport and feel confident that all necessary steps are being taken to allow us to return safely to our leagues and the sport that we all love. It is more important than ever that we return to our leagues and support our local centres and the business people who run them.

So I am encouraging all our members to go out, take your family and see first hand how your centres have made bowling a safe activity. I know you will feel confident returning to your leagues when they start up again.

Thank you and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance.

Kindest regards,


Tom Johnston
President H&DTBA
