Youngsters from a Doncaster school were bowled over with the opening of the town’s newest bowling alley.
The eight-lane Kingping tenpin bowling alley has opened within the refurbished Adwick Leisure Centre which is undergoing a £2.8 million renovation.
And among the first guests to try out the new facilities at he centre in Welfare Road - which has been rebranded as Adwick Leisure Complex - was a group of pupils from Scawsby’s Stone Hill School.
Youngsters tried their hand on the lanes and checked out the rest of the changes to the building including the installation of a space themed play zone and an American style diner, along with a newly refurbished and expanded gym.
Michael Hart, chief executibe of Doncaster Culture Leisure Trust, which runs the venue, said: “We are delighted to have invested in Adwick to develop this new leisure complex.
“With bowling, a new soft play area and a great place to eat, we are sure that the local community will make the most of this fantastic venue.”
Coun Bob Johnson, Doncaster Council’s cabinet member for leisure and culture, added: “These fantastic improvements really add to Adwick Leisure Centre’s offer and make a big difference to the local community.
“We have also recently invested in Dearne Valley Leisure Centre. This is helping residents to keep fit and healthy as well as adding to Doncaster’s leisure offer.”
Works to improve the swimming pool and changing facilities at Adwick will begin in the spring.
