OUR HISTORY

In the late 1970s, both owners Tom Burke and Jon Tang were Porters (now called Guest Service Attendants) at Sunset Lanes in Beaverton. Both were involved in the Junior League program at the center and competed in many tournaments in the Greater Portland Area.

Once both of them grew up they both worked for Brunswick bowling, working in several different centers and states. In the late 1990s both Tom and Jon moved back to Oregon and purchased Sunset Lanes and made many updates including a large arcade and B-Town Bar & Grill.

In 2015, Tom and Jon purchased their second location KingPins Portland on 92nd and Powell.

In spring 2018, Sunset Lanes will be updating to a new center about 100 yards behind the current location and will be re-named to KingPins Beaverton.

In the Community

PROUDLY ACTIVE IN BOTH PORTLAND AND BEAVERTON COMMUNITIES

KingPins is involved in the community in Portland and Beaverton. KingPins partners with several schools and local churches for fundraisers and donation gifts. Kids Bowl Free is a national program that designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time during the summer.

Children’s Cancer Association Hearts of Joy in February is a time for both locations to be involved in a great cause. This is a time we can give back and show our support.
