Tenpin Leeds is also home to American pool tables, arcade games, table tennis and the UK’s only Foot Bowl Pitch. What I love about this place is it mixes modern technology with old-school vibes, making it perfect for both kids and adults that never grew up. Check them from Wednesday and look out for team Pink Gorilla’s bowling tournament in the new year.
