Barracuda has opened its 150th venue, with its new Varsity site, in Manchester. The £750,000 development is in the Wilmslow Park area of the city. Mark McQuater, the company’s chief executive, said: "I am proud of what we have achieved as a company, but there is a lot of hard work ahead given that we have a lengthy pipeline of developments and expect 20 new sites to open before the end of the year."
