Uptown AlleyAfter being forced to vacate its longstanding location on Academy Road, Academy Lanes has found a new home near Canad Inns Polo Park.

The Winnipeg bowling alley announced last summer it would do its best to find a new location after the property’s landlord rejected their lease renewal.

Since the new location will no longer be on Academy Road, the bowling alley will be renamed Uptown Alley when it moves to 1301 St. Matthews Avenue.

“Our new location will feature 30 lanes of bowling, laser tag and a redemption arcade that will be like nothing else in Winnipeg,” president Todd Britton said.

Staff say the new alley will also include upgraded food and beverage options, as well as catering services.

The bowling alley is expected to open in July.
