Punters at a new £2.2million bowling centre will be able to post their scores straight to Facebook.

The super-modern Hollywood Bowl, due to open at the Xscape on October 15, will also see ten-pin bowlers able to order food direct to their lanes.

And women will be able to rack up strikes wearing a bowling shoe specially designed by students at the London College of Fashion.

Hollywood Bowl general manager, Richard Whitaker, said it is all part of bringing the newest and most high-tech bowling centre in the UK to Milton Keynes.

The centre will include 18 fully computerised lanes and will create at least 40 jobs.

Its arrival follows the closure of Milton Keynes Mega Bowl on June 30 and is part of a new development that will see Aspers Casino arrive at Xscape.

Bowlers will be able to take advantage of a new scoring system that posts their strikes to social networking site, Facebook, and order food from in-house restaurant, Harry’s Kitchen.
