It was in 1985 that the Partington Family decided to turn a building which had been the winter quarters of the Blackpool Tower Circus into an indoor flat-green bowling centre.
The circus ring and the stalls for the animals formed the basis of the new centre which was opened in October 1985 and contained five rinks. Facilities including a coffee shop and bar were also provided in the complex.
In 1995 work started on the building of additional rinks to extend the Bowling Centre to seven rinks. This was completed in 1996. Partington's have invested heavily over the years in the bowling centre.
Over the years we have invested in the Bowling Centre, initially purchasing a fully electronic scoreboard and scoring system; this state of the art visual display enables bowlers to clearly see up to the minute match scores. More recently the green bowls carpet was replaced by the famous 'Blue' Pro-Weave carpet as seen at the World Bowls Tour Indoor Championship Rink on television. Newton Hall is only the 4th bowling centre in the U.K. to have had this installed and we're very impressed with the results.
Following on from this Newton Hall Bowling Centre has hosted a number of prestigious events including The Co-operative Funeral Care International Open since 2013. The competition has extensive live coverage on Sky Sports channels and certainly helps to raise the profile of the Centre. We work closely with World Bowls Tour and a proud to host some of their high profile events. Click here for more information about World Bowls Tour
