Watch: Malta’s legendary bowler Sue Abela bids farewell to ‘old’ Eden Superbowl

Bowling centre closes its doors for five months due to works to revamp facilities

Under a gusty wind and intermittent showers, veteran bowler Sue Abela bid farewell to the Eden Superbowl on Sunday night, a landmark entertainment hub that has been a staple of Malta’s bowling scene for over three decades.

The Eden Superbowl will be shut for the next few months as the venue undergoes revamp works that will see the construction of a Family Entertainment Centre that includes a bowling alley.

“Without a doubt, saying goodbye to this place hurts,” reflected the seven-times Sportwomen of the Year Sue Abela, a double European champion who honed her skills at the Eden Superbowl.

“So many good memories are etched in these walls, and I can truly say that without Eden and their unwavering support for the sport, there would be no Sue Abela.”

The Eden Superbowl, a landmark entertainment hub in Malta, has played a pivotal role in shaping the island’s bowling scene since its inception in 1988.

The venue has hosted numerous national and international tournaments, including 31 Malta Open championships, a prestigious event that has seen a lot of great amateur bowlers from all over the world who later became successful in their careers as a professional bowler in the USA.

As the old Eden Superbowl prepares to pave the way for a new era, the site will undergo a multi-million-dollar transformation, giving rise to a comprehensive development project that encompasses a hotel, office space, a commercial complex, and an enhanced Family Entertainment Centre.

The new Family Entertainment Centre promises to elevate the bowling experience with 20 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, alongside an expanded range of recreational activities and entertainment options.

Abela, four-time winner of the Malta Open, remains enthusiastic about the future of bowling in Malta and expressed her anticipation for the new Eden Superbowl.

“I may be getting older,” she quipped, “but I’m still top fit, and I’m excited to embark on a new chapter in my bowling career.”
