 They must also have a valid ID on their person for the duration of the visit. 

In Venue

  • We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your reservation to check in at reception and receive the correct bowling shoes. (No-one likes to bowl in size 8 shoes if you’re normally size 10)
  • Do not step over or proceed past the foul line at any time. (That’s the massive black line at the start of the lane if you didn’t know)
  • Do not bowl more than one ball down the lane at any time. Strike bowling shoes must be worn when bowling. (Stilettos look hot but not practical).
  • Strike bowling shoes must not be worn outside. (This is technically stealing)
  • Do not place your hands inside the ball return (unless you have fully insured them beforehand)
  • Any lane faults must be reported to reception. (Just because your mother says you're technical doesn’t mean it’s true)
  • While a fault is being attended to, no balls are to be sent down the lane Management reserves the right to refuse lanes to patrons.
  • We accept no responsibility for any personal property that is brought to a Strike venue
