In line with current government guidance, the bowling alley at Valley Centertainment will begin welcoming customers back from 4 July.

New safety measures include the use of alternate lanes to enable social distancing and enhanced cleaning after each bowling game. Customers will also be given the option of wearing disposable gloves and groups will be restricted a maximum of six people, with bowlers asked to arrive slightly ahead of their booking time.

Stephen Burns, chief executive at Hollywood Bowl Group, said: “The health and safety of our customers and team remains our priority. Whether it’s to bowl, enjoy the amusement areas, have a bite to eat or something to drink, we want to assure our customers that we are doing everything we can to create a safe and fun experience for families to return to.”
