New home for Singapore bowling

"With the best-case scenario, we would have been able to get things ready just before SEA Games, but we didn't want to be floored by any unforeseen circumstances during the Games." - Singapore Bowling Federation president Jessie Phua (right, with SBF Youth Bowler of the Year Joel Tan), on the association's new bowling centre.

Singapore Bowling Federation (SBF) president Jessie Phua has been campaigning for a home for her sport for years, and she will finally get her wish soon.

The national sports association is setting up a 38-lane bowling centre at the Temasek Club at Rifle Range Road, which will be ready for operations in the third quarter of this year.

The new bowling centre costs more than $2 million, which SBF will fund with the aid of Sport Singapore.

The national team trains primarily at the National Service Resort & Country Club now, although they also train at Safra Mount Faber or the Orchid Country Club for certain competitions.

It’s all hands on deck for Jodie Lai, 13, Samantha Yom, 15,  Bernie Chin, 15, and Savannah Siew, 18.

But they are prepared to put in the hard work and they are aiming high.

Tomorrow, we feature two young athletes who are already Singapore sports stars after their exploits in 2014.

If they continue to improve and stay hungry, Aloysius Yapp, the Republic’s first pool world champion, and Martina Veloso, a young shooter who was a winner in a World Cup event last year, are set to be winners for a long, long time.
