A national gaming brand will add to the developing Arena Quarter when it opens a bowling alley in Leeds next week following a £500,000 make-over.

Ten Entertainment Group has taken over the space formerly occupied by MFA Bowling, and in an eight week renovation project is breathing new life into the old venue, which will boast 26 bowling lanes with state-of-the-art flat screen monitors, touch-screen consoles and a modernised scoring system.

Tenpin Leeds will also house several full-sized American pool tables, table tennis, a high-tech arcade, and the UK’s only foot bowl pitch.

Eat and drink while you play.

A dining area will be serve up burgers and hotdogs to loaded nachos and ice-cream. Thirsty gamers can knock back a selection of shooters, cocktails and beer pitchers, whilst kids and non-drinkers can enjoy a wide range of soft drinks and retro favourite, Slush Puppies.

Tenpin Leeds will also be set-up for children’s parties, corporate events and Christmas parties.

Ten Entertainment Group are currently the second largest ten-pin bowling operator in the UK, with the new Leeds venue bringing their portfolio of Tenpin branded sites to 43. The group collectively employs around 1,100 people across the UK.

Christian Jackson, General Manger at Tenpin Leeds, said: ‘’We’re excited to be bringing the Tenpin brand to a city like Leeds, which is easily one of the biggest and best UK leisure destinations outside of London.’

‘’The site we’re taking over had so much potential, but was in desperate need of modernisation, and we’re confident the transformation will make Tenpin one of the city’s go-to entertainment centres for friends and families to enjoy a memorable night out together. With the First Direct Arena and endless local restaurants and bars on our doorstep, we’re in the sweet spot for experiential leisure.’’
