Woody’s Bowling Center re-opens

BUCKHANNON — Woody’s Bowling Center was finally able to reopen on Monday, after six long months of being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  “Reopening night was very successful.  Our regulars were excited to be back,” Owner Cemantha Woody stated. 

However, things are not completely back to normal just yet, as they are operating with altered hours and a limited food menu.  Per the Upshur-Buckhannon Health Department, Woody’s Bowling Center will also be operating at 50 percent capacity, indicating that every other lane and table will be open, with a limited number of patrons at each table.  Adhering to these strict health guidelines for everyone’s safety also means that the arcade games will be temporarily unavailable.  Woody’s current hours will be Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., closed on Thursdays, and 12:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 

If guests are unable to maintain six feet of social distancing, Woody’s suggests wearing a face covering in those instances.  If you are fevered, feeling sick or showing any symptoms of illness, and/or feel unsafe in public spaces, they strongly encourage you to stay home. 

Hand sanitizer is placed around the center and the staff is diligently sanitizing the bowling balls and seating after every use – happily ensuring the safety and well-being of their guests! 

“We look forward to seeing everyone and ask for the public’s patience while we learn our new normal,” Woody stated.  Check out their Facebook page “Woody’s Bowling Center” for the most up to date information and changes in operation.
