Here’s what we’re doing to protect customers and staff during the coronavirus pandemic until restrictions can be eased further:

• We’re reducing our capacity by using only every other lane to allow people to keep a safe distance from each other. A maximum of 6 people will be allowed on one lane.

• We’ve installed hand sanitising stations throughout the building, for customers and staff to use.

• We’ve introduced a one-way system to allow the flow of people through the venue.

• 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 will be 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).

• Bowling balls will be sanitized after each booking has ended.

• We’ve installed a new booking app so that customers can stay at their lane and order food and drinks via their smartphone and choose to pay by cash/card on delivery, or pre-pay via the app. A staff member will also offer lane-side or table service so that you don’t have to go to the bar.

• We’re implementing 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.

• We’re limiting the number of people in the washrooms to 2 at a time.

• The wearing of PPE is not a Government requirement, but any members of staff, or visitors who wish to wear masks, gloves etc are welcome to do so.

• Signage is in place, reminding people to wash their hands and respect distancing guidelines.


• Guests will be asked to pre-pay for their table time wherever possible.

• No more than 2 people will be allowed to use one table.

• Balls, table edges, cues and equipment will be sanitized between bookings.

• Food and drinks orders will be taken at, and delivered to, your table (or you can order via our app)

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


• Please pre-book, and pre-pay, your slot. We’ll arrange the timing of bookings to reduce congestion in the venue.

• A limited number of race pods will be available for use.
They will be cleaned between bookings.

• What can you do to make your visit as safe as possible?

• Please stick to Government guidelines and only come as a group from no more than 2 households.

• Expect to be asked for your contact details to assist with the track and trace system.

• Please pre-book, online or by phone and, as we’re running at reduced capacity, let us know if you wish to cancel for any reason.

• Please enter via the double glass doors at the front of the building and use the sanitizing stations there before moving on to your chosen activity.

• 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.

• Please stay within your group as much as possible and take care when moving around the building to use the toilets or when entering and exiting.

• Please keep smoking to a minimum during your visit in order to avoid congestion around the exits.

• Respect distancing guidelines at all times.

We can’t wait to welcome you back. Have fun, stay safe!

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.
