Riverside Bowl will be a new venture for Valley Leisure and will feature eight bowling lanes, interactive 3D glow-in-the-dark golf and an American style diner.

Renovation work at the site above Wilko in Bridge Street has begun and is breathing new life into the zone that was previously run by a local community group.

“This is an exciting new venture for Valley Leisure. We’re delighted to launch this new community facility and provide a bowling alley for Andover and the surrounding area, we will continue to have the community at the heart of the charities future plans.” said Kevin Paterson, CEO of Valley Leisure.

Riverside Bowl will also be home to a bowling league, as well as hosting birthday parties and corporate events. Look out for special launch activities, which are planned for February half term. Visit the Valley Leisure’s Facebook page for updates:
