Tenpin has been a hugely popular sport since the alley first opened in the Kingdom Centre 1964, with many leagues established. Now Tenpin, one of the UK’s leading bowling and entertainment providers, is coming to Glenrothes next month. It will host a “variety of fun filled activities, providing a premier destination for friends and families .”

Bret Astle, director of operations at Tenpin, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Tenpin’s state-of-the-art competitive socialising experiences to Glenrothes with the introduction of high-tech bowling lanes, karaoke and laser tag meaning that there is something for guests of all ages to enjoy.

“With the festive season just around the corner we look forward to welcoming those in the local area to celebrate with us and experience all the exciting new venue has to offer this Christmas and beyond.”

The revamp could bring the sport to a new generation of Fifers. The original, privately owned, Fraser Bowl opened in August 1964 and was home to many teams playing in competitive league as well as a go-to venue for social events.
