Stay safe at our centres…

Here at Shipley Tenpin Bowling Limited we want you to have as much fun as possible while you are here with us, but your safety is always extremely important to us too, so just in case here are some handy hints!

Please ensure that all young children are supervised at all times, and ensure that they do not run around the centre as this could cause injury. Adults in the group should also make sure children are given the following guidance:

  • Do not place your hand inside the ball return at any time. Wait until the ball has returned fully onto the rack, if a ball does not return fully please ask a member of our team to assist you.
  • Whilst you are waiting to bowl, please do not touch the balls that are on the rack as your fingers could become trapped when the ball returns.
  • Do not step over the black line at the start of the lane surface, our lanes are coated with a special oil varnish to protect them and the surface is really slippery.
  • Never go near the bowling machine at the end of the lane, if your ball gets stuck please call a member of our team.
  • Should you notice any slippery surface or spill a drink yourself, please call over one of our team members who will be happy to help.
  • Pick up the balls carefully and hold with both hands. Children should use the lightweight balls, if a heavy ball falls onto your toes this hurts a lot!
