Big balls, twelve lanes - coming soon

BOWLING afficianados throughout the Kingdom will have - at long last - a venue to

keep their strike-ball delivery up to snuff as Cambodia's first ever American-style

"Bowl-a-drome" is expected to open by mid-August.

"We've heard that many bowlers want to come and I'm afraid that 12 lanes won't

be enough," said the proprietor of SuperBowl who requested his name not be put

in print.

The state-of-the-art, made in USA, bowling technology, which includes computerized

scoring machines, is currently sitting in Singapore, said the ten-pin senior executive.

Once the equipment arrives in-country and clears customs, he says that it will only

take three weeks to install.

Workers at SuperBowl's fourth floor location in the glitzy Hong Kong Center on Samdech

Sothearos Blvd. are working feverishly to finish the initial preparations before

the $600,000 worth of lanes, pins, balls and other equipment arrives.

The SuperBowl boss says that fees will be set at $3 per string and that bowling shoes

will be rented out for a dollar a pair.

Each lane will also have a bowling instructor as he believes many people may be unfamiliar

with the ins and outs of ten-pin bowling and novices need to be coached not to deliver

a ball when the pin sweeper is down.

SuperBowl has already had its soft opening with six snooker tables and a cafe overlooking

the Mekong in full operation, and the proprietor is bullish on the entertainment

complex's potential for a hefty return on the investment.

"I don't need to advertise," he says, "our snooker tables are full

already and we expect many bowlers to come too."
