Roxy Lanes brings ice-free curling to Edinburgh

PLAYERS will be able to try their hand at ice-free curling and ten-pin bowling next month when Roxy Lanes opens in Edinburgh.

The leisure company is moving into the back of the former British Home Stores (BHS) branch on Rose Street.

As well as ice-free curling and ten-pin bowling, the 25,000sq ft site will also offer duckpin bowling, bank shot shuffleboard, and shuffleboard.

Edinburgh will be the 13th outlet for the chain, which already has branches in cities including Liverpool, Leeds, and Manchester.

The site will also be the brand’s first bowling alley in Scotland.

The chain marked its arrival in the Scottish capital by placing a giant bowling pin in Princes Street Gardens.

Joel Mitchell, commercial manager at Roxy Leisure, said: “We are so excited to be opening our latest site in Edinburgh this November, and what better way to celebrate than with a gigantic bowling pin?

“The city of Edinburgh is iconic and historic, with a huge creative spirit.

“Its abundance of nightlife venues made it the perfect place to bring our latest competitive gaming concept to and we can’t wait to open our doors to everybody on 18 November.”
