BOWLING fans will be able to score a strike as Hollywood Bowl is finally set to reopen this Saturday.

Hollywood Bowl in Bracknell alongside 53 centres will be opening their doors on Saturday, August 1.

It comes after a controversial campaign from the TBPA and Hollywood Bowl who called on the government to allow bowling alleys to reopen.

Bosses of Hollywood Bowl said there will be strict cleaning and social distancing measures in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Extra measures will be taken to ensure customers and staff are safe, with a reduction in the number of lanes open to provide extra space between each game taking place.

Amusement machines, as well as bar and diner seating, will be appropriately spaced out and signage will be visible throughout the venue to remind customers to maintain a safe distance from others.

Stephen Burns, chief executive at Hollywood Bowl Group, said: “Whilst it’s a little later than originally planned, we’re delighted to finally be able to open our centres again in England from 1st August.
