A spokesman said: “Ten Entertainment is excited to be opening in Sheffield, most likely at the end of 2023 or Quarter 1 2024. Whilst the investment will not be disclosed you can be assured that it is a significant sum which will deliver a state-of-the-art venue and a great experience for our guests.

“It will bring a good number of jobs to Sheffield, approximately 50 people. Sheffield is a city that Ten has wanted to operate in for a long time and now we have the perfect site in Angel Street which has excellent transport links and is close to Hallam University”.

Tenpin Ltd, part of Bedford-based Ten Entertainment Group, has submitted plans to Sheffield City Council but workers are already busy on site.

Sheffield already has ten pin bowling venues at Lane 7 on Matilda Street, just off The Moor, and Clubhouse in Meadowhall.  The application follows a string of entertainment-focused venues in the city centre including Boom Battle Bar, Roxy Ball Room, Billy Big Balls and Glory Holes.
