Each bowler and parent or adult in charge of a group agrees to the following Safety and House Rules:

Safety rules

Warning – Be cautious when bowling or using the facilities of the centre. Bowling is an active, competitive sport requiring physical conditioning, coordination and skill and can present dangerous situations and the risk of serious injury. Due to the physical requirements of bowling, a fall or accident and an injury, may occur regardless of the condition of the approach and other areas of the centre.

Responsibility Each parent or adult in charge, especially when children are bowling or present, is responsible for teaching each person in the group the Safety Rules and making sure the rules are followed.

Approach – No food or drink on the approach.  Slippery, wet or sticky spots or substances can affect a bowler’s slide and delivery and cause a fall and serious injury.  Inspect the approach each time before bowling and make adjustments.  Take practice slides.  If the approach is sticky or slippery, stop bowling and ask a staff member for assistance.

Ball and Shoes – Wear bowling shoes if you have an open toe sandal, flip flop or heels on.  Have the correct fit for the bowling ball and shoes.  See a staff member for help selecting or changing a ball or shoes before you approach your lanes.  Clean the soles of shoes before bowling, after going to the rest room or anywhere else in or outside of the centre.  Moisture, humidity or a slippery or sticky substance on the sole of a shoe can cause a fall and serious injury.

Foul Line – Lanes are treated with oil and are extremely slippery.  Crossing the foul line can cause a fall and serious injury.  After crossing the foul line, clean the soles of shoes before bowling.  Ask a staff member for help.

Tripping Hazards – Watch for step-ups to and from the approach, settee and concourse and other areas of the centre and keep all coats, bags and personal belongings out of the walking paths to avoid tripping.  Tell a staff member about any tripping hazard right away.

Equipment – Mechanical equipment is dangerous and can cause injuries. If a ball or pin is stuck or the bumper must be raised or lowered, ask a staff member for assistance.

Ball Return – The ball return has moving parts.  Serious injury can result from reaching into the ball return opening.  Keep hands away from the ball return and ball return tray.  Watch children.
