About Tenpin - Our story so far!

We have over 20 years of bowling history so we really know our stuff! 

The Tenpin brand was formerly owned by Essenden Ltd, and later taken over by Ten Entertainment Group plc. We are proud to be part of one of the largest bowling companies in the UK and still growing. Our headquarters are in Cranfield Bedfordshire. Tenpin Ltd is a member of the TBPA (Tenpin Bowling Proprietors Association).

Several of our existing sites were formally known as Megabowl back in the day until we refurbished and rebranded, then becoming the show-stopping, all-singing and dancing entertainment centres we are today.

How we roll! 

Bowling has always been a star attraction, and it’s been around for generations. It’s something we have all grown up with and is often part of a great family day out or catching up with friends. Whether it be a birthday party or a first date, it just works and always brings a smile to our faces. Impressively, we’re delighted to have over 1000 lanes, across 54 sites with more in the pipeline.

Mind you, whilst bowling is at the beating heart of what we do, there’s a lot more to enjoy with plenty of indoor activities to keep the good times flowing. There are private karaoke rooms in several of our centres, which are perfect for nights out with the girls or family fun. You can sing your hearts out with thousands of songs to choose from.

What’s more, our Laser tag arenas provide an incredible 4D experience for you and all of your friends, and our escape rooms are great to test your skills. A handful of our sites also offer soft play for the little ones. Our newest centre in Sheffield offers a new crazy golf experience with escape room elements. We really do think of everything you need for the best value for money day or night out. 

Completing the majority of our centres you’ll find added arcade games, as well as pool and table tennis tables for some friendly competition. All our activities are best served with some tasty food and drink to refuel.
