Puttshack will open a £5m site in the Intu shopping centre in Watford in 2020.

It’s also opening a new site in Intu’s lakeside shopping centre on 19 August.

The openings are part of Puttshack’s plan to open a new site every 12 weeks from 2020, including a site at 1 Poultry, Bank, later this year.

“We are incredibly excited to announce these new regional openings, which form the first of many in our national expansion plan,” said Puttshack CEO Joe Vrankin.

Earlier this month he told MCA the business had already found over 30 potential locations in the UK and “after we get to 50 we’ll be in a position to say, ‘can the market support more than that?’ We have quite a long runway available in the UK. We’re just getting started.”

Rebecca Ryman, Intu’s regional MD, said Puttshack is a “genuinely exciting concept that truly embraces the competitive socialising trend. Our portfolio of some of the UK’s most popular retail and leisure destinations means we are well placed to support its ambitious expansion plans.”

Puttshack raised £27m of funding in June 2019 with lead investor Promethean Investment.
