Ten Entertainment to reopen all England bowling centres on 1 August
Ten Entertainment said on Tuesday that it will reopen all of its bowling centres in England on 1 August.
The company said Covid-secure measures will be in place at the 39 centres - which represent 91% of group turnover - with ample space for social distancing and a new ordering platform for food and drink allowing customers to order directly to their lanes or tables via a Quick Response (QR) code.
The group’s remaining three centres in Wales and three in Scotland are fully prepared for reopening once government restrictions are lifted there, it said, adding that staff in England will be taken off furlough.
Interim executive chairman Nick Basing said: "We are fully prepared and looking forward to delivering fun and entertainment in a very safe way.
"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."
