BTBA have signed an agreement with Tastecard

The BTBA have signed an agreement with Tastecard and will be giving this benefit to all of our Supporters, Standard and International Gold Members as part of their Membership, with effect from 1st June 2019.

Tastecard is a discount card which gives the holder offers such as 2 for 1 and 50% off at over 6,500 restaurants Nationwide including Frankie & Benny’s, Pizza Express, Zizzi’s, Byron Burger and Chiquito’s to name a few.

The annual RRP of a Tastecard membership is £79.99 but we are offering it to our members exclusively as part of their membership. Annual savings for the holder are over £300.00 based on average use. The average saving per use is £18.88 so members would only have to use the Tastecard twice in order to cover the cost of our Standard Membership.

Everybody loves to eat out, so now it can help pay for your BTBA membership too! For more information, visit

Supporter Membership

In 2019 we have introduced a brand-new membership level call the Supporter Member. This allows non-bowlers the opportunity to support the Association, as well as receive the exciting new Tastecard benefit. Members will also receive an exclusive Membership card and have access to the latest news and information from National Council. All of this for just £10.00 per year.

What’s more, for every new fully paid up Supporter member, we will be giving their Local Association a rebate of £1.50.
