Ten Entertainment to reopen majority of English locations
Bowling centres operator Ten Entertainment said on Friday that it will reopen the majority of its English locations on 15 August.
Ten Entertainment said 35 of its 39 centres in England will resume trading on Saturday, with Covid-secure measures being put in place to allow for ample social distancing and a new web ordering platform for food and drink service also being implemented.
The AIM-listed firm added that three centres in Wales were already open and a further three in Scotland were "fully prepared for reopening" once Government restrictions are lifted.
Ten highlighted that its English and Welsh centres represented 86% of group turnover.
Interim chairman Nick Basing said: "We are fully prepared and looking forward to bringing people and families together and delivering entertainment in a very safe way. We will be opening 35 of our English entertainment venues and Scottish venues when permitted.
"The Government has delivered extraordinary levels of support enabling businesses like ours to endure the crisis and emerge intact to restart and rebuild from here. We can, in turn, assist in ensuring that families and people of all ages can enjoy the bowling experience safely, together again."
As of 1340 BST, Ten shares were up 3.18% at 128.46p.
