Remember, we're open at 9.00am over Half Term

Just a reminder that you can enjoy bowling from as early as 9.00am in our Tenpin sites. 

A lot can happen in an hour...  Every 60 minutes, planet earth travels 66,620 miles around the sun.  The world's population grows by 9,300 and your heart beats 4,800 times.  That's some impressive stats.

Having an extra 60 minutes to do something you love can make a memory last a lifetime. 

We know how you feel about bowling, so that's why we've opened our doors earlier than ever especially for you.  You can now enjoy an extra hour of bowling in your Half Term holidays, starting from 9.00am.  Now that's worth getting out of bed for!

If you haven't taken advantage of our earlier opening hours this week there's still time to indulge.  Make best use of your time off from school and spend some quality time with Tenpin. 

Find your nearest Tenpin here and join in the fun at 9.00am.  As you're sat in front of your computer, why not book here right now.

Swansea going for Third 5 Star Rating

Earlier this year the Food Standard Agency awarded Tenpin Swansea a 5 star rating accolade.  Now with the end of year closing in, the site is awaiting to see if they will be awarded another five star rating for 2014. 

This year's award marked the second five star rating in three years which is a great accomplishment for the site. 

Manager of Tenpin Swansea commented, "(this award gives) customers confidence in our ability to deliver quality food at a high standard of hygiene.

"Often fast food is considered down market, however this grade shows the delivery and hygiene of the products is to a very high standard."

All Tenpin sites offer the very best standards of hygiene and food quality, so it's good for one particular site to be recognised.
