We decided to go bowling in Eastleigh at the Swan Centre for the first time this week-end. You do need to pre book over the week-end as the slots go very quickly. If you go on a Sunday, parking if you are there for a couple of hours will be fixed at £2.50, so cheaper than the Saturday and the roads were lovely and quiet too.
I took my 12 year old daughter and it was great! A lot less stressful than taking a 12 year old clothes shopping. The shoe hire was part of the price and I pre booked a big pitcher of diet coke as I just thought it looked cool! I think the ticket price for us both for one game which was ample ( took about 30 minutes) was just under £10 so MUCH cheaper than an afternoon at the cinema.
Being a bit dim I asked for help to get us started but actually it was self explanatory you just tap in your name, if you can handle a mobile you can handle the bowling alley machine. (more…)
