Skittle alley hire

we can bring our skittle alley to you!

Take nine skittle pins, three balls and take aim. It’s as simple as that.

Skittles is one of the best games around, it’s easy to play, a great ice breaker and one of the few sports you can play whilst holding a pint of beer.

It’s still much enjoyed in pubs and clubs all over the UK. But with our skittle alley hire now the skittles can come to you.

Create the perfect event

Serious About Events have a range of professional portable skittle alleys available. We can help you create your own fantastic skittles event in the venue of your choice.

With up to 30 alleys available, we can cater for events large or small. Our alleys can be adapted for length and could also be branded.

In addition, we can create, organise and host your event if you wish, including branding, trophies and a prize giving ceremony. Or just keep it simple with a skittle alley or two, skittles and balls for you to have fun running your own tournament.

Professional but fun!

For something more serious (but still fun), we can provide everything you need to add some showbiz touches to your event, such as sound systems, PA systems, LED screens, live camera feeds, and even a presenter/interviewer for your event. Then all the scores and those moments of elation or frustration can be seen on the big screen.

Whatever your needs, we can provide a bespoke package to ensure your event is seriously memorable.

Work parties

Why not create your own “night down the pub” work party. Pit different departments against each other in a “friendly” skittles competition over a beer or two.

Team Building

Team building doesn’t have to be out in all weathers building a raft or pelting each other with paint. Stay warm and dry as your teams enjoy their very own skittles event. If you fancy a team building weekend away, why not join Serious About Events at one of their organised weekend events.

Corporate events/conference

Skittles is a great excuse to network. Why not add some fun to a corporate event by giving your delegates a chance to unwind with some evening entertainment after a day’s conference.


Skittles is the perfect ice breaker. Our skittles events are ideal for Fresher’s week where new students can quickly make new friends and bond over a beer or two.


School sport doesn’t have to be limited to football, rugby, hockey and netball. Our skittle alleys can be used for a bit of different sporting fun at PTA events, school fundraisers and fetes.


Why not hire our skittle alleys to help raise money for your favourite cause. Serious About Events offers special hire rates to registered charities.

Birthdays and anniversaries

Get your special party started with a skittle alley to keep your guests amused and entertained while they mix and mingle.

Bespoke weekends

We can arrange everything for a fun-filled weekend skittles break in a party atmosphere, including sourcing great venues, accommodation, meals and entertainment.
