About Hornsby Rockets Ten Pin Bowling

Hornsby Rockets Ten Pin Bowling is a bowling team for bowlers with disabilities, bowling out of Hornsby AMF on Saturday mornings. A large number of the bowlers take part in local, regional and national competitions, providing a strong sense of community for bowlers and carers alike.

Value to the Community

The Rockets are a force in Hornsby, hosting an annual challenge night attended by many members of the community. As an organisation we provide a strong social setting for bowlers with developmental problems, allowing them a positive outlet, and a safe and controlled environment to interact.

Why the funds are needed

Until 2014 Hornsby Shire allowed the Rockets to use a small bus (25-seater) to transport competition bowlers to local and regional competitions. In 2014 Hornsby Shire sold the bus, leaving the bowlers to their own devices to get to competitions. As a result, the number of bowlers competing has dropped off, affecting their ability and qualifications to compete in the annual nationals competitions. The funding would be used to hire transportation to competitions.
