Like so many bowling centers in California, historic Bel Mateo Bowl in the San Francisco Bay Area community of San Mateo is fighting for survival because of a prolonged shutdown mandated by Governor Gavin Newsom.

Bel Mateo Bowl is one of the centers formerly owned by the late Rex Golobic, a past President of the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America.
