10-pin bowling is back courtesy of Brothers Bowling and Billiards, the new incarnation of the former Dogwood Bowling & Billiards at Five Corners on South Fraser Way.

New owners, the Manuck family, are also new to the bowling business, but they’ve brought enthusiasm, skill… and numbers.

Barry and Nancy Manuck run Brothers, the only 10-pin bowling alley east of Maple Ridge, with their three sons, Shayne, Jeremy, and Steven, as well as several other relatives.

The family has returned all 18 lanes to operation, and reinstated three weekly bowling leagues. On Tuesday nights is the seniors’ league, the ‘no-tap’ beer league plays Thursdays, and a general league plays Sundays. The Manucks are also hoping to begin pool, darts, and pinball leagues once they’ve finished setting up the alley.

The Manuck family have a long history with the bowling alley they now operate.  Jeremy used to take his brothers bowling for surprise birthday parties. and Shayne took dates there in high school.

“Bowling is a classic hobby,” says Shayne, who loves the retro feel of the sport. He and his family are bringing 10-pin back to Abbotsford, as well as providing the only billiards hall in the downtown.

Brothers Bowling is located at 33550 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.
