History of Tenpin Bowling in the UK Part 115 – Olympia Bowl Town Centre East Kilbride Fife

By John Ashbridge, Tenpin Bowling Proprietors Association President

The Olympia Bowl, tenpin bowling centre was situated in the Olympia building beneath the Ballroom. It is thought that the centre opened during October 1965, but the number of lanes installed is not known. However, the equipment is believed to have been supplied by the Brunswick Corporation. It is also unclear how long the centre operated but the building later served as a public library, known as the East Kilbride Central Library.
