GOVERNMENT MANDATED TEMPORARY CLOSURE:
Narrows Plaza Bowl will remain temporarily closed due to the government mandate that all bars, restaurants, entertainment and recreation centers close to help keep COVID 19 (coronavirus) from spreading.
The Governor’s Safe Start Washington plan calls for bowling centers to reopen in Phase 3. Pierce County Health Department has issued a statement that the county is not ready to apply for Phase 3 and may even get sent back into Phase 1 based on the number of new COVID 19 cases in the county. Governor extends ‘no mask, no service’ statewide, rolls back Phase 3 bar seating, and hits pause on phase advancement.

We will post updates as we have new information available. This is as of July 2, 2020.
Dear Narrows Plaza Bowl Community,
Narrows Plaza Bowl, which has been providing family fun and entertainment to the South Sound area since 1983, has been closed for two months due to the state mandating all non-essential businesses remain shuttered to combat the spread of COVID-19. Washington has announced that some non-essential businesses, including bowling centers, may reopen as early as mid-June based on Phase 3 of the Safe Start Washington plan. Narrows Plaza Bowl is continuing to monitor the changing regulations and will re-open as soon as we can.
The health and well-being of our customers and employees is our top priority. We have been conducting a comprehensive review of county, state and federal operating guidelines and how they apply to our center. During the time that we have been closed to the public, center management has been focused on new methods of sterilization and deep cleaning of our almost 40,000 square-foot facility. The center has also revamped and updated its operational processes and procedures to best ensure the safety of its guests and employees. Our employees will be required to have temperature checks before each shift, wear face masks and gloves as appropriate and each employee is undergoing new training specific to COVID 19.
We have a very large and spacious bowling center, which will allow for us to properly place bowlers across our 40 lanes at a safe and comfortable distance apart. We want to provide all of our bowlers with a respite during these tough times but do so in a way that’s carefully planned in order to keep our employees and bowlers safe and healthy. Narrows Plaza Bowl, which will use a phased approach to its opening when it happens, will initially limit the number of customers occupying its facility at any one time as it adheres to state and municipal required social distancing guidelines that are still in place at the date of opening.
Additional COVID 19 measures to include:
· adding additional hand sanitizer stations
· installation of sneeze guards
· implementation of social distancing guidelines
· sanitation of bowling balls and rental shoes after each use
· sanitation of tables and chairs after each use
· single serve condiments in the Café
· installation of foot operated door pulls for our restrooms
· increased regular sanitation of restrooms, vending machines, and arcade games
· increased regular sanitation of touch points such as credit card terminals and door handles/pulls
The above list will be subject to change as new county, state or federal guidelines become available. Above all, we will strive to keep our employees and guests safe within our center. If you have any questions or concerns that we have not addressed here, please feel free to call Chris Goddard, General Manager at 253-565-1007 or email him at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you again soon. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and stay positive.
