STRING PINS is the ten-pin bowling venue at One Leisure St Ives with 5 lanes available. ​We have redefined the bowling experience by creating a comfortable environment that can be enjoyed whether you are socialising with family or friends, breaking the ice on a first date or beating your boss at a works outing.

A wide variety of refreshments can be purchased from Café Zest.

Do you have someone in your group who needs bumpers? These are electronically preset before you start bowling so they only appear when it is their turn.


One session of bowling is £5.90 per person and can be booked for up to 6 people per lane. We allow 15 minutes, per person, per session.
