Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answer to any questions you have here. Still not sure - Contact Us

  • Yes. We have ramps to help them push the ball down the lane, lighter-weight balls and bumpers to keep the ball on the lane. Children must be supervised at all times in the centre, especially when handling bowling balls and on the lane approach. We advise children from two years old to bowl, but it is up to the supervising adult. 

  • Just give the venue where you made the booking a call and they will be able to help you.

  • The staff at the venue will be able to help you with the rules of the game and give you tips for winning.

  • Each game of bowling is made up of 10 frames. In each frame, the players get two balls, unless you knock all the pins down (strike) on your first ball.

  • Just call the venue and let them know. Where deposits have been taken, these cannot be refunded.

  • We have all shoes sizes for bowling, and shoe hire is included in your game price. In some of our centres, you can choose to bowl in your own shoes. These shoes must follow the guidelines though – flat-soled pumps, trainers, boots and shoes are all okay. We can’t let you bowl in high heels though, that would be very difficult.
