And American owner Louise Cousins, who is running the centre with partner Mark Duerden, said the interest had exceeded their expectations.

She said: “Our opening day was very well-attended and we have had a lot of interest since then.

“We have had young and old, girls and boy, come along which is great. Many are from the Burnley area but we have also had people travel from Blackburn and Manchester.”

The centre incorporates a 25m. advanced range and a 10m. beginners’ range, and also takes bookings for parties and corporate events.
