Competitive Socialising in Sync

Competitive Socialising is fusing activities such as bowling, interactive darts, mini golf, and pool with a high-end food and beverage (F&B) experience. While it’s not an intrinsically new concept, it has recently undergone a re-interpretation, stimulating significant growth and opportunity across the UK.

Bowling Vision specialises in providing competitive socialising installation services, helping you transform your venue into a vibrant hub of entertainment and social interaction. Whether you’re looking to enhance your existing bowling alley, arcade, or entertainment centre, or create a brand-new space, we have the expertise to bring your vision to life.

What is Competitive Socialising?

Imagine an evening where the timeless fun of bowling, the precision of smart darts, and the charm of mini-golf all come together. Combine that with a high-end F&B experience

Competitive Socialising activities are designed to drive footfall and increase dwell time. Most of them offer a re-imagining of a classic pub game, a re-awakening through the partnering with powerful technologies or a re-positioning which pivots the game to become more accessible especially to groups of players.

Why is Competitive Socialising Popular Now?

Competitive Socialising has seen a resurgence in the UK in recent years, and for good reason! It taps into our collective craving for experiences that go beyond the ordinary. In a world full of screens and digital distractions, we’re leaning more towards real-world connections and making memories that stick. Competitive socialising enables us to create shared experiences, build friendships, and foster a sense of togetherness.

The trend is also fuelled by the desire for a holistic entertainment experience. Competitive socialising venues often combine cutting-edge technology with modern design, creating an immersive environment that goes beyond the ordinary. This fusion of innovation and entertainment appeals to those seeking a multi-sensory and dynamic experience, making these venues stand out

What Are Competitive Socialising Activities?

As a leading competitive socialising installation and equipment supplier, Bowling Vision offers a variety of competitive socialising activities that might ring a bell. But here’s the scoop—they’re all spiced up with technology and a twist on the traditional game! We like to keep things fresh and exciting, after all.

Duckpin Social

A more compact version of traditional tenpin bowling, Duckpin Social features a smaller lane length, offering a smaller overall footprint than full-length bowling. If you’re keen on diversifying your venue’s offering, Duckpin Social’s overall aesthetic and gameplay experience is perfect for you.

AR Darts

Our Augmented Reality (AR) Darts bring the classic game to life with mesmerising projections on a real board. Perfect for family fun or spicing up competitive socialising venues, AR Darts is the next-gen trend in darts bar hospitality. No need to fuss with scoring or progressing the game—the tech does it all!

Interactive Darts

Starting in London less than a decade ago, Interactive Darts are now taking aim at towns and cities across the UK. Utilising a real dart board with real darts, the scoring tablet and screen take the game to new audiences.


Shuffleboard  has seen a renewed resurgence and has once again become one of Britain’s most loved bar games.  The sleek wooden tables bring a touch of class to any venue. And the gameplay? It’s simple, addictive, and competitive.
