In light of the recent Australian Government announcement that all indoor sporting facilities are to close, we sadly regret to inform everyone that we will be closing the centre from noon today for the foreseeable future.
We thank everyone for their support and patience during these difficult times, but the health and safety of all of our customers comes first.
We will be in contact with all bowlers, and any birthday and group bookings in the coming days to provide further updates.
For now, stay safe and look out for your family, friends and neighbours.
Stick together and we'll make it through.
In light of recent changes due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, we have had to make some tough decisions in regards to leagues and league bowlers visiting our centre.
Again, I do want to say that we are currently business as normal. We are still open for trade. We have increased our cleaning methods and practices to provide a safer environment for our customers and hope that you can still support us during these difficult times where possible.
In reference to the Australian Government's decision to limit the capacity of indoor events to 100 guests max., we have been forced to undertake a review of our Saturday morning trade, our busiest day, effective immediately.
After consultation between league co-ordinators and staff, we have come to the difficult decision that the Kingpins and Mighty Bowlers leagues will bowl fortnightly for the foreseeable future as of this weekend. The Kingpins league will be going ahead this week, 21st March, while Mighty Bowlers has been postponed until next Saturday, 28th March.
The Challengers league will still go ahead, albeit in a reduced capacity.
If you have any concerns about whether your child/client should still be bowling or not, please feel free to contact me anytime. Please let it be known that no one is forcing or pressuring anyone to bowl in these uncertain times, and it is also recommended to stay at home if you or your child/client is feeling unwell. The health and well-being of all of our ATPB community is our highest priority.

ORIGINAL UPDATE: 18/03/20
To our loyal ATPB customers,
In light of recent times and issues surrounding the ongoing threat of COVID-19, we would like to re-assure all of our customers that we continually monitoring and assessing the situation in front of us. We are currently business as usual and the doors remain open, however we are aware that this could change at any moment.
In the event that the centre is forced to temporarily close, our first priority will be to get in contact with our league bowlers, bookings, and other regular customers and inform you of any changes. We will be recommending that all bowlers ensure their contact details are correct with us when you visit, so that we can keep you informed.
In the meantime, while it is business as usual, we are also being serious about our general cleaning and hygiene practices. All tables, benches, scoring consoles, ball returns, door handles, video games, ATM and other common surfaces are being regularly cleaned and sanitized to help prevent the unnecessary spread of germs. If anyone is feeling unwell, or if you are genuinely concerned about being out in public, we also recommend that you do not attend our facility.
For the league bowlers, there are extra measures in place to assist with your well-being and safety. We have implemented a ‘lock-out’ policy with the scoring consoles to prevent any unnecessary contact with surfaces. Score corrections and other changes required can be done at Reception in a respectful manner. Ball returns and reset buttons are also being regularly cleaned, however please inform us if you feel uncomfortable utilizing this feature, and we will be happy to sort it out for you. We also recommend no high fives, handshakes, or other unnecessary contact with others.
There are other options available for our league bowlers in the event you wish to not attend your weekly league. Please call the centre if you wish to discuss, but this may include the option to pre-bowl during quiet times for example, or organizing for a substitute. to bowl in your place.
During this time, we also recommend utilizing contactless payment methods (ie. Credit card, phone/watch, etc.) instead of using cash.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the centre and we will be happy to discuss this with you. In the meantime, we look forward to being here to help provide a means of fun and enjoyment and an escape from the issues in the world today.
