Ten pin bowling is such a universal activity, not weather dependent, safe for all age groups, no special skills to speak of and don’t worry if you’re not the most athletic; it’s all in the wrist action (ooh er!).
Absolutely perfect for stag do's, you can split into teams or play as individuals for some light competitive fun that will see you cringing and cheering within seconds of each other. The American style gaming centres are aplenty all over the UK and packages can include eats too, with diner style meals and lite bites, but most importantly the bar is always on hand so you can blame your off-piste swings on the booze. Bowling shoes are supplied on-site but no, they’re not the most stylish attire – at least you’ll all be wearing them.
Play on the hi-tech lanes with their psychedelic lighting and watch your scores come up on modern overhead screens. Check out if you’re going on one of the centre’s theme nights and join in the fun with anything from 60’s to Wild West and even Egyptian get-up – will anyone be able to bowl straight we wonder?
The vibrant environment offers other activities too, like games machines and tables and a general amusement arcade feel. It’s a good all round buzz.
