M'sia's Biggest Bowling Alley Starts Operations
MELAKA, Aug 1.
The Melaka International Bowling Centre (MIBC), reputed to be the biggest bowling alley in the country, started operations Saturday.
Built at the cost of RM25 million at the Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC) in Ayer Keroh, it was opened by Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.
Speaking to reporters after the opening, he said the 52-lane purpose-built bowling alley would be managed by Benua Aspirasi Sdn Bhd.
He said the MIBC would host the 45th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup in November.
The MIBC can serve as a training centre to produce world-class players and promote Melaka as a major bowling centre, he said.
"We hope more youths would take up bowling and stay away from unhealthy activities," he added.
Owned by Bowlplex Sdn Bhd, a state government subsidiary, the bowling alley is equipped with QubicaAMF bowling machines costing RM8.26 million and housed a cafeteria, retail outlets and a surau.
