Leisure Electronics are king of the Castle once again!

Bingo is at the very heart of the team at Leisure Electronics. They’ve been manufacturing and supplying Bingo equipment since the 1990’s.

So, it was no great surprise when they won another contract with long-term client, Castle Bingo, to supply all the bingo equipment and seating for the refurbishment of their luxurious and prestigious site at Nantgarw in South Wales.

A beautifully refurbished club serving the Welsh valleys

Throughout the lockdown period, Leisure Electronics were involved at every stageof the project. Working together with Castle Bingo’s contractors, engineers, operations and club teams, the project scope included:

  • Installation of 700 MCB barrier positions
  • Brand-new tables and seating
  • Outdoor bingo area
  • Electronic infrastructure

Due mainly to unavoidable restrictions imposed around COVID-19, the refurbishment at Nantgarw spanned a 12-month period, and Leisure Electronics completed their work over a total of 5 weeks. This covered the initial site surveys, site meetings, pre-wire installs and the main installation itself.

Once the club re-opens for business when restrictions are eased, the Leisure Electronics team will be on-hand to support the Club every step of the way, and they will conduct follow-up visits, ensuring everything is performing at an optimum level.

Refurbishments are a perfect fit for Leisure Electronics. The team is right up to date not only with the latest, cutting-edge electronic systems, but they also have the depth of knowledge to support a wide range of legacy systems too, which are common across the bingo sector.

And this is all thanks to their team of highly trained and vastly experienced engineers and developers, many of whom have over 30 years’ experience in the sector.

And that’s not all!

The work didn’t stop with the club at Nantgarw. Castle Bingo decided that the loyal customers at their nearby Merthyr Tydfil club shouldn’t miss out either, and the decision was taken to give the club a mini-refurbishment.

Leisure Electronics were thrilled to be contracted once again to provide the necessary support and infrastructure to Castle Bingo’s project team. Being a refurbishment, the primary task was to uplift the existing seats and equipment from the floor, allowing the main contractor to lay the fresh, new carpeting. The Leisure Electronics team then re-installed all the barriers along with new seating, then rigorously tested everything and re-commissioned.

The results at Merthyr are outstanding, and the returning club team and customers will be delighted with their equally impressive, new-look bingo club.

A happy customer

Jodie Davis, Electronic Platform Manager at Castle Bingo was delighted with the installs. Shesaid, “Leisure Electronics are always professional and efficient, with great communication, and they integrated well with the delivery team on the various projects”.

Chris Shipley from Leisure Electronics responded, “As always, it was our great pleasure to work with the progressive and forward-thinking Castle Bingo team, re-investing in their retail bingo offering and all the associated trades again. The results are outstanding, and the club members and staff will have a fantastic venue to return to”.
