VIEW – 1961-1968 Tenpin Pictorial – These Magazines from 1960’s were some of the first to be produced and recovered thanks to David and Sandie Waugh and Pete and Gary Oakley. Front covers only

 

VIEW – 1978-1996 World of Tenpin Covers – One hundred and twenty-seven issues produced by Keith Hale and a team of writers Worldwide. The magazine featured tournament results and reports from the UK and internationally. Features such as readers letters, averages and centre round ups were provided by bowlers all of the UK and it was a special moment to be mentioned in the magazines.

VIEW – 1996-2006 Go Tenpin Covers – Published by Boon and Sons (Holdings) Ltd, Edited By Eric Hayton (Photo Right), women’s editor Judy Howlett, designer Ming Chong and Advertising director Tony Riley. The team set about keeping a record of the sport for 10 years by using tried and tested ideas but in a slick new modern layout. Sadly over this time and despite hard work the magazine ended in 2007 due to increasing print costs, a drop in memberships and reduced advertising as the internet was beginning to take people’s attention.
