Burnley’s bowling alley first opened in the 1960s but later closed when interest in the sport diminished. The building was used as an MFI store for a while but in 1989, with the popularity of the sport growing again, reopened as Superbowl 2000.

In 1997 the alley was sold to AMF Bowling.

In November 2010 it was sold again, to the Garland Leisure Group, and renamed First Bowl Bowl Burnley.

  1. We had school party booking here this week and I must say what a well organized place, probably one of the best we have been to. We had over 70 children all bowling and eating and the staff had all the food brought out to us within 30 minutes. Thanks to all the staff. The children really enjoyed their day
