International standard bowling centre in Bintulu beckons
BINTULU: As Bintulu Commerce Square at Parkcity Commercial Centre rises from the ground, it will house the 30,000 sq ft of one of the most modern, hip and up to date bowling centres in East Malaysia.
Being MegaLanes’ second centre in Sarawak, after MegaLanes East in Miri, the directors together with their passionate staff are investing more than RM4.5 million for the development of the centre to ensure it will be one of its kind and a new pride for the people of Bintulu and the state.
It is definitely something well achievable for the vastly experienced MegaLanes team as proven by their many other centres throughout Malaysia such as MegaLanes Kuantan and the ultimate arena for bowling in the country, MegaLanes Sunway Pyramid.
“The centre will be designed with fun energetic themes and can be transformed into a cosmic bowling themed centre with just a click of a button to cater for mysterious glow-in-the-dark moonlight bowling,” said Sarawak Land (Kemena Park) Sdn Bhd director Troy Yaw Chee Weng.
He added with availability of glow-in-the-dark bowling balls now in the market, patrons will experience a hyper-space adrenaline rush, climax to galactic highs and leave bowlers with a tingling addiction to come back for more.
Well stocked bowling pro-shop will also be located in the centre with new released bowling balls, equipment and accessories. Certified IBPSIA (International Bowling Pro-shop and Instructors Association) will be available to fit, map and drill your ball to performance specification standards.
Yaw said the centre will also have pool tables and other relaxing recreational games.
“To quench your thirst and fulfil your tongue desires, just pop by at the centre’s snack bar. Menus fit for kings will be made available as you fill your tummy at the dining area and feel like a pharaoh being served by friendly customer oriented personnel,” he added.
According to him, family events such as birthdays and anniversaries, corporate functions like inter-department or in-house department one day bowling events can also be organised in the centre. “Equipped with public address systems together with well-trained service assistants, whatever occasion you choose to hold in the centre will be a huge memorable success,” he added.
Tenpin bowling dates back as far as 3200 B.C. when primitive bowling pins and balls were found by archaeologists in an Egyptian boy’s grave.
More than 5200 years overdue, the wait is coming to an end for Bintulu as tenpin bowling will arrive at her shores.
