TOBC will still operate more than 40 sites

Kent-based Garland Leisure Group has purchased 11 AMF Traditional-branded bowling centres from AMF Bowling, which owns and operates the Total Bowling Company (TOBC).

The deal is part of AMF's reorganisation of its portfolio and includes centres in Burnley, Chatham, Ilkeston, Keighley, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Scunthorpe, Weston and Whitstable.

The remaining AMF Traditional centres in Hull, Margate and Macclesfield will continue to operate alongside TOBC under the new name AMF Bowling Holdings.

TOBC now has a total of 45 centres across the AMF-owned family entertainment centres, the Hollywood Bowl centres and AMF Bowling Holdings estate.
