Taos Gutters Bowling Alley
Gutters is a 12 lane brand new bowling facility as well as a full-service restaurant with beer and wine. Gutters restaurant features a real brick oven for authentic fire-roasted pizzas. We have gluten-free crust as an option for pizza lovers, hand built sandwiches, salads, burgers, and wings. Our goal in creating Gutters is to provide our community with a facility that can bring safe, fun, entertainment for all ages. We are looking forward to bringing enrichment programs to local schools, offering team building for businesses, and college credit for UNM students.
Gutters is a United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Certified bowling center. We offer a variety of bowling leagues for all ages and skill levels. Check our Taos Bowling Leagues page for information about our ongoing and upcoming leagues.
Gutters now has a pool table, air hockey and several arcade games!
COVID19 UPDATES: OPEN FOR LEAGUES ONLY
The current Public Health Order, as of September 18, 2020 states that bowling alleys may open for league play only.
“Bowling alleys may open for league play only and must adhere to occupancy restrictions and all applicable CSP’s including wearing masks.”
Over the next few days, Gutters will be announcing several new leagues starting up. We’ll have something for everyone, from short season beginner leagues to a full USBC sanctioned winter league.
If you would like to bowl, under this current health order, you will need to be on a league. Please contact our league coordinator, Misty firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to sign up for a league. Or fill out the league sign up form below the schedule.

*All info on this schedule is subject to changes. Last updated on 9/21/20
Gutters can be open for league bowling only at 25% occupancy. If you would like to bowl, you must register for a league in advance. We have LIMITED space available and will fill leagues on a first come, first serve basis. New leagues will start every 4 weeks!
You do not have to be a good bowler to sign up! Some leagues are just for practice and the others use a fair handicap points system. You’ll just need to commit to the weekly schedule and payments for the length of the league you sign up for.
Since we can only be open for league play, we are trying to create a new league for each day. We’ll have something for everyone!
Gutters will be following the recommended guidelines for Covid Safe Practices (CSPs) including, but not limited to 25% occupancy (only 40 customers may be inside at once), frequent sanitization, maintaining a 6ft distance from others and mask wearing. Please use common sense, refrain from high fives and wash your hands often.
Changes in League Rules
The United States Bowling Congress (USBC) has rolled back its rule about using cleaning agents on your ball during league play. Players may use isopropyl alcohol to clean their balls at anytime.
The USBC has also declared that using cross-lane during league play is not required for sanctioned leagues during this period of covid pandemic.
There is a new rule implemented recently about balance holes. You may not have any extra holes in your ball that you don’t use. This only applies in our USBC sanctioned leagues.
And finally, there will now be the full lineage charge for each week for each bowler, even if you take an absentee score.
Why only 4 weeks for the youth league?
Some kids are dying to get back ASAP. Four weeks will be a good opportunity for them to get some practice while we get the word out. By next month we might be able to allow more bowlers and get some sponsors.
What’s a 4 week practice league?
It’s a chance to get some practice. Bowl as many games as you want in 1.5 hours once a week for 4 weeks. No scores or averages kept. You can sign up for the 1&2 league spots and bowl the whole time!
We can’t wait to see you out there again!
We are currently open for league bowling only.
Please consider joining a league.
