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. Plus there's free shoe hire or you can wear your own.

Your lane host can provide you with table service from our Zest café menu and licensed bar.

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.
