Blind and Vision Impaired Tenpin Bowling began in 2001 at AMF Box Hill (now closed). From this small group, five bowlers were selected to represent Australia at the inaugural IBSA Blind Tenpin Bowling Championships in Helsinki, Finland, in 2002.

Since its inception, BVIT has worked to further the goals of blind and vision-impaired Australians in the sport of tenpin bowling.

We have conducted national competitions in Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane and run a bi-yearly Phantom League where members compete in a 'virtual bowling competition' by submitting their weekly scores.

Details of BVIT activities are available on their web site at
