Electric Bowl and Covid 19

ELECTRIC BOWL & COVID-19

Here’s what we’re doing to protect customers and staff now that Covid restrictions are easing:

• We’ve installed hand sanitising stations throughout the building, for customers and staff to use. We recommend that you continue to use them for now.

• We’re asking people to pre-book and pre-pay for their bowling experience whenever possible, in order to limit the amount of contact and cash-handling between customers and staff.

• Customers are asked to wear suitable footwear so that they can opt not to use our bowling shoes (please note that you may be asked to wear bowling shoes if your own footwear is deemed unsuitable).

• Different patterned bowling balls are available at each pair of lanes. You can easily tell which type you and your group is using if you want to reduce the amount of cross-contact between your group and the group on the adjacent lane.

• Lane-side service will still be available to help reduce the amount of people moving around the venue. However you are now free to order at the bar and walk around with food and drinks.

• We’re maintaining enhanced cleaning procedures, paying special attention to touchpoints like door handles, handrails, tables and chairs, amusement machines and toilet areas. Members of staff will adhere to strict hygiene standards.

• The wearing of face-coverings is now a matter of personal choice. We do recommend that you consider wearing a mask when moving around the building at really busy times. This is probably good practice for another few months.

• If you, or any of your party, are exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus on the day of your visit, please don’t enter the building. You’re booking can be refunded or moved to a later date.

• Signage is in place, reminding people to maintain good hand hygiene and respect each other’s space.

• If you, or any of your party, are exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus on the day of your visit, please don’t enter the building. You’re booking can be refunded or moved to a later date.

• Contactless payments are preferred, but cash is still welcome.

THE RACE CENTRE

• Please pre-book online or by phone where possible. We’ll try to arrange the timing of bookings to minimise congestion in the venue.

• All 10 Race Pods can now be used simultaneously.

• Please maintain good hand hygiene and respect other people’s space.

• If you, or any of your party, are exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus on the day of your visit, please don’t enter the building. You’re booking can be refunded or moved to a later date.

Halloween Bowling Fun!

Come and enjoy some family fun bowling here at Electric Bowl. We have lots going on throughout the week to keep the kids entertained during half-term.

Children who are bowling wearing fancy dress costumes will get a FREE small SPOOKY slush each. Also, glow in the dark bowling will available from 12noon throughout the week. Furthermore, knock over the RED PIN and enter our competition to win some great prizes.

Finally, complete our Ghost Hunt and win a prize, and all juniors will get a glow in dark wrist band.

Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.

This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.

To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes.

When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.
