all people should work together. no one is above anyone else. with complaints pouring in, where is the positive, family bearing values in which bowling originated? sad to say, if this does not change, people will go elsewhere, no problem!!!

You are killing league bowling in your house. By moving the Friday night league to an early start date you have lost the largest league you had. I seriously doubt that the open bowlers will bring in the guaranteed revenue the 34 team league did not to say the amount of beer you sold during that time. The new manager you brought in has NO people skills and knows nothing about the sport of league bowling.All Gloria can say is “I can’t complain ’cause I work here” and yet she serves as a league secretary which give her every right to complain and stand up for her league. Gloria wanted Sharion Harwell’s job and when she got it she didn’t know what to do. She is constantly bad mouthing bowlers to other bowlers and in general gossiping. The center was much better off with Sharion. You have put young kids behind the counter who do nothing but complain of the working conditions. I have bowled in this center since the 1st year it opened but am having serious thoughts about returning this fall. I will wait to see what you do with the leagues and the lanes before making my decision. Many of my friends have already gone to other centers and you may have brought about the demise of this house for competition bowling. You should promote leagues and let Bowlarama and Jupiter cater to the open bowling. You will make more money. For every league bowler you loose you will loose 2 open bowlers.

Not sure where to post this, but i have a complaint… Now me and a friend come up there about everyday to play pool, and usually drop about 10 dollars in a table, a night… We’ve been doing this for about 3 months or more now… Anyways last night we went up there and one of us was sitting on the edge of one of the ski hokey games, now both these machines have been out of order for the past 2 and a half months, but the machines are not what bothers me… The fact that a *NEW* manager that we have never seen before by the name of “CJ” came up to us and told us to get off the table. Now the problems i have was, she was very rude and demanding and in now way asked us, She tried to order us… Number 2 was the fact that there is no where else to sit… And Three Its not hurting a broken game that has been in the same condition and has not even been atempted to fix. After i questioned her about why i had to get off the game, she replied with its not mine, and since you dont want to listen, leave now. I would like to know why i get this attitude from a *NEW* manager, and no one else, theres never been any problems with us sitting on the edge or leaning on the table, so why start now? This was very irritating, and i feel that i should inform you guys, aswell as a couple groups of people i know who go there specifically for playing pool. I feel this lady needs a course in proper courtesy to customers, and how to approach a paying customer with a problem.

Excellent accomodations for persons with disabilities. Very willing to provide whatever needed to insure a good time for kids with special needs. Gloria is awesome and helpful!!

I think if u dont like to be around smoking people, then go to a center that is smoke free. I enjoy bowling but I also enjoying my cigs along with my beer lol

I received an entry to the Senior Queens Classic and called to see if Non-Smoking for the tournment. The desk said it was not, so I can’t participate as have severe lung problems. Please consider making it non-smoking in the future as I believe more would enter.

Showplace Lanes In Euless has Extreme Bowling on Friday/Saturday with GREAT live DJs. I was wondering if you have that since your center is closer to me.

I was a little disappointed that there isn’t anything about your birthday party packages.

My husband and I have been on 3 different leagues at Showplace and we have the best time! Everyone there is great and the lanes are in good condition. Almost home away from home.

I went here for the Pepsi State Tournament and am going again for the Annual State Tournament and I love this place, best center I have ever seen myself also.

I live right by Showplace Lanes and I go there almost daily – it is the best bowling alley I’ve been to in Texas.
