Bowling is a game where risk of injury exists, in particular when the game is played incorrectly. To reduce the risk of injury you MUST NOT cross the BLACK FOUL line. You MUST wear bowling shoes at ALL times whilst bowling. You MUST NOT throw more than ONE ball down a lane at a time. You MUST NOT throw foreign objects down the lanes. Keep your hands, arms and other objects away from the ball returns. Bowling balls are heavy; whilst in use bowling balls must sit on ball return between frames and when not in use house balls (bowling balls belonging to the centre) should be returned to the ball racks. You MUST NOT hold on house balls you are not using as there is limited number of each size and weight and these are available for all customers to use. A group does not require a bowling ball for each person if they using the same size and weight. The pinspotter will return the balls after each frame. You MUST report any spillages or lane problems immediately to a member of staff.

Any violation of these rules will result in your lane(s) being closed and you and your group forfeiting any remaining games or time left on your lane(s). We will not issue refunds for game or times forfeited.

You may use your own balls and/or shoes whilst bowling. We do not, however, take any responsibility for damage that might arise from the use of your own balls or shoes and any use is wholly at your own risk.
