The new concept that is ‘Pins’ at Bowl Central, was formally opened in Westover Road at the end of last month.

The brainchild of Tracy Standish, former owner of the well-known Bowlplex brand, Pins’ guests were wowed at the intimate urban bar with boutique-style bowling area, complete with smart black walnut lanes and bowling balls fashioned on American pool balls.

‘Pins’, the bowling arm of the Bowl Central attraction, provides six state of the art lanes, the like of which Bournemouth has never seen before and, coupled with the urban cocktail bar, creates an exciting new destination providing a great place to meet friends and colleagues to relax and have some fun!

During the party, Sarah McLellan from The Print Agency said: “This is just fantastic!  It’s trendy but family-friendly all at the same time.  My teenagers love bowling so we’ll certainly be returning with them very soon!”

Another guest, Allan Tofield from Richmond Home Improvement said: “What a great place!  A really lovely vibe and great to see so many people enjoying themselves in Bournemouth’s latest attraction.”

Mr Standish saw an opportunity to bring an active and social entertainment destination to Central Bournemouth and bought the Fun Central venue situated directly opposite the Pavilion in Bournemouth’s Westover Road.

“I’m delighted with the reception our new Pins attraction has received and look forward to welcoming everyone into the cocktail bar – whether that’s for a light lunch or dinner and/or a game or two on the lanes.” Mr Standish said.
