A DUDLEY bowling alley has been forced to temporarily close due to flood damage.

Tenpin Bowling at Castle Gate was hit by flooding following heavy downpours on Tuesday afternoon (July 30).

The 22-lane bowling alley was evacuated after water rushed in from the roof and through the doors.

Staff at the attraction aim to reopen this Saturday morning following clean up and repairs.

A statement on the Tenpin website states: "Tenpin Dudley is currently closed due to a leak from the floor above.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

"The Tenpin Team are working hard to resolve this and hope to be open again by Saturday morning."
