North East bowling chain to create 30 jobs with launch of new Yorkshire venue

Boutique bowling chain Lane7 is set to launch its latest venue in South Yorkshire later this month.

The brand is set to open its newest site in the centre of Sheffield next weekend (December 14).

Situated just off The Moor on Matilda Street, the 20,000 sq ft venue comprises nine lanes of tenpin bowling alongside a range of activities including baseball, darts, ping pong, pool, beer pong and arcade games.

In addition, the site - which aims to employ up to 30 full and part-time staff once fully open - will feature an eatery operated by street food specialist Fat Hippo and a bar.

Launched in Newcastle in 2014, Lane7 has since expanded into cities across the UK including Birmingham, Liverpool, Aberdeen and Middlesbrough.

Lane7 owner Tim Wilks commented: “This has been a long time in the planning. We’ve been desperate to bring Lane7 to Sheffield for so long and now we can finally get the doors open. Lane7 offers a city centre bowling experience like no other.

“Our site in Sheffield is definitely one of the most exciting we’ve created. The space has enabled us to bring together the very best in grown up entertainment and pair that with a great late-night drinking and dining experience.

“Sheffield has an amazing night time scene. This is a city that knows how to have a good time and we can’t wait to be a part of it.”
