Ten Pin Bowling

canary_10pin

This weekend we installed a pair of outdoor 10 pin Bowling lanes at Canary Wharf in London. These form part of the estates free summer entertainment, an opportunity for office workers to come outside and have fun.

The specification from the client was for a fun activity for outdoor use that didn’t require electricity to operate. We gave them several options and the 10 pin Bowling lanes were the favoured option, complete with a gravity ball return on the side.

Today I went back to see them in action, and was delighted to see a queue of eager  participants.  There is already talk of inter office leagues.

This is a project we saw through from initial idea, created the design, manufactured, and now installed. We knew it was going to be popular, ask every delivery driver who dropped into the workshop when we test assembled them, it proved impossible to deliver a package without bowling a ball first. Now we are in discussion with a pub co for several sets for Pub Gardens, Beer and Skittles – A classic combination.
