Playnation Donate Pool Tables

25th November 2014 by OnSide

We would like to pay a huge thanks to Playnation who have kindly donated pool tables to two of our Youth Zones.

Established in 2013 Playnation is the UK’s leading provider of family entertainment solutions to the leisure industry operating approximately 20,000 amusement machines across over 1,700 sites in the UK.

The company employs over 800 people across the country and is majority owned by our Patron’s – Palatine Private Equity.

Having heard about OnSide’s work through Palatine, Playnation joined our annual ten pin bowling tournament in Manchester earlier this year where they met some young people from the Factory Youth Zone and heard more about what OnSide and our Youth Zones are achieving for young people.

When the opportunity arose, Playnation offered two pool tables to our network which have been since donated to Mahdlo and the Factory Youth Zones in Oldham and Harpurhey respectively.

Adam Hodges, Chief Executive of Playnation commented: “Playnation are a North West based company with strong links to the surrounding area, so we are pleased to support this very worthwhile charity for localised youth communities.

“Onside really make a difference to young people’s lives and I hope the pool tables will help provide some fun and entertainment for even more young people.”
