Nine sites previously operated by MFA Bowl have been saved from permanent closure after a Midlands-based nightclub group acquired the venues from administrators Duff and Phelps.
MFA bowling alleys in Nottingham, Southend, Chatham, Lewisham, Weymouth, Nuneaton, Scunthorpe, Sunderland and Worcester will now be operated by the newly formed company Disco Bowl.
“It’s no secret that we had been looking at the MFA Bowl UK estate before they fell into administration, but we felt that the problems of the previous company were too great to overcome,” said Disco Bowl MD Pete Terry.
“Our new company can operate with a clean sheet and looks forward to investing heavily in these nine sites once we have agreed long term deals with the landlords. I’m pleased to announce that all previous bookings will be honoured in full.”
It is expected that the recently shuttered venues in Banbury, North Shields, Preston and Southend will remain permanently closed.
