Welcome to the official site of the British Universities Tenpin Bowling Association (BUTBA).
The main aims of BUTBA are to promote the sport of Tenpin Bowling, to increase participation at student level across the country and to provide an environment in which bowlers studying in higher education can compete fairly and safely.
We also provide a playing environment for those who have graduated, with recent (or not so recent) alumni being eligible to compete in the ex-student bowling tour, which runs alongside the student one.
If you are a club captain and would like to join us, please contact the committee and we can give you any assistance. If your university does not have a club, then we can help you to try and find other bowlers in your university and set up a club with the help of your Students Union. Alternatively, we can put you in touch with other local clubs who you can bowl with as an honorary member. For a full list of the Universities that have Tenpin Bowling teams, please go to the member clubs page.
