AMF Bowling



We have real infectious enthusiasm for what we do. That’s why we bring you the feel-good game in a place that will make you cheer.

With 698 lanes, 5,500 balls, and 1,500 team members in our 44 centres, we’ve been perfecting our unique brand of all-round entertainment for more than 20 years! It isn’t just our size that makes us the best.

Bowl with us and you’ll really feel the good times roll. Firstly we know a thing or two about what makes a great day or night out, and our venues have all the essentials covered. All of our bowling centres are equipped with at least 16 lanes, a licensed bar, café or diner, and an amusements zone jam-packed with the latest games.

In addition to this, being the market leader means we set industry standards. You and your family, friends and colleagues are in safe, expert hands, thanks to our extended family of knowledgeable team members. We work our socks off to keep them fully trained in our rigorous customer service values.

It’s our genuine love of the game that keeps bowling simply brilliant! We have our own team member league, host meetings on the lanes and do our upmost to put ourselves in your shoes (wearing our own pro-plimsolls, of course!) We believe it’s being the game’s biggest fans that helps us create that positive energy, so that you can have a simply awesome experience every visit.
