Like all indoor entertainment, the bowling alley at Ocean has been closed due to the coronavirus lockdown.

LED Leisure, which manages Ocean, has announced the lanes will reopen on Saturday on a limited basis.

The bowling alley will be open from 11am until 9pm Monday to Thursday and from 10am until 9pm from Friday to Sunday.

New double-thumbed bowling balls have been introduced to make sure everyone has a ball which is the correct weight and size.
