WBC Safety and House Rules:


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 Center. 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 Center.


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.


Tripping Hazards.  Watch for step-ups to and from the approach, settee and concourse and other areas of the Center 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.


Ball and Shoes.  Wear bowling shoes while bowling.  Have the correct fit for the bowling ball and shoes.  Rental ball and shoes are NOT permitted to leave our Center.  Our rental shoes are NOT permitted to be worn outside the Center.  Clean the soles of shoes before bowling, after going to the rest room or anywhere else in the Center.  Moisture, humidity or a slippery or sticky substance on the sole of a shoe can cause a fall and serious injury.


Approach.  No food, drink, or substances (rosin, powder, etc.) 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.  No jumping across ball returns, and only one person should be on the approach, per lane, at one time.


Scoring System (touch screens pedestals).  No food or drink on the tables.  No climbing or hanging off the tables.  No hitting or abusing the scoring equipment.  WBC reserves the right for the customer(s) to reimburse money to Willsborough Bowling Center for any damages and repairs to the Center caused by the customer(s) actions.


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.


Lane.  Throw one bowling ball at one time.  Do not throw bowling balls when the pinsetter is operating.  Do not throw bowling balls on lane(s) when the pinsetter is off, or lane(s) is not in use.  WBC reserves the right for the customer(s) to reimburse money to Willsborough Bowling Center for any damages and repairs to the Center caused by the customer(s) actions.


Foul Line.  Lanes are treated with oil and are extremely slippery.  Crossing the foul line can cause a fall and serious injury.  If you should slide across the foul line by accident, clean the soles of shoes before bowling.  Please do not walk on the lane(s).


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.
