At the YFCU ten-pin bowling competition, teams of five players will compete in two locations; Dundonald Ice Bowl (for Counties Antrim, Down and Armagh) and Brunswick Movie bowl in Londonderry (for Counties Londonderry, Fermanagh and Tyrone) on the same night.

The team with the highest overall pin fall will be crowned the winner of the ten pin bowling trophy.
