First look: Lincoln Bowl gets a £200k makeover

Strike: A Lincoln bowling alley has been given a £200,000 digital upgrade.

A £200,000 investment has given Lincoln Bowl a fresh new look, with staff proud to announce latest technologies have made it the most up-to-date bowling ally in the UK.

The makeover given to the bowling venue on Washingborough Road includes new upholstery and tables as well as technological upgrades such as automatic bumpers.

These allow individual players the choice of having them up or down on a turn by turn basis rather than being stuck with one or the other.

Interactive touchscreen LED consoles now provide the ability to take a selfie, which can be displayed on animations between turns and, when logged into Facebook, automatically uploads scores and animations straight to the feed.

Simon Craddock, Director of Lincoln Bowl said: “We felt bowling was making a comeback and decided to invest in the future of the bowling side with a £200,000 upgrade to the newest bowling system.

“As part of the upgrade, we are also in the process of installing online bookings which will show live availability of lanes at Lincoln Bowl.

“We are becoming increasingly busy at the weekends, Saturdays are especially busy and we recommend booking first.

“The new lane furniture has been designed with a greater emphasis on combining bowling with food and drink as an evening or afternoon out.

“The new system will also enable the customers to order food and drinks from the lanes, meaning you don’t have to leave the fun. This is especially true with larger bookings over two lanes for up to eight people, which gives a larger private area for the group.

“We recommend customers try our Friday evenings offer which is 20% off bowling, food and drinks from 6pm all evening.”
